Due to climate change, considering future rain event patterns and increased average temperatures, wind-driven rain exposure of buildings can increase. In order to assess the future damage risk related to moisture, it is essential to take the future wind-driven rain load into account. Computational fluid dynamics simulations of wind-driven rain are performed on a historical building located in Victoria, BC, Canada using the current and future weather data. The results show an increased wind-driven rain exposure of the building by up to 20%, especially in façade regions which are already exposed to a higher amount of rain. Show more
