Abstract: The effect of intermittent rain on the heat flow through walls was investigated experimentally. A numerical model was used to interpret the experimental data. The sol-air temperature was modified using a measured evaporation coefficient to account for evaporation following rain; this was determined by separate tests. The cooling effect of rain on a warm wall was accounted for by using the wet-bulb temperature. The effect of the cooling was more significant than the effect of evaporation in predicting the heat flows.
