Abstract: A mathematical model and a computer software were developed to predict the heat and moisture flow characteristics of porous building materials exposed to rain and solar radiation. The average reduction in heat gain by porous building walls due to rain effects was found to be about 10%. The annual reduction in the heat gain due to rain, on the other hand, was about 5% of the total annual wall heat gain. These results have significant implication on energy use and indoor thermal comfort design.
