AbstractThe purpose of this report is to describe a study made of rain falling on the walls of two buildings, one located in Ottawa, Ontario, the other in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The buildings are occupied by the Division of Building Research and the Atlantic Regional Station, respectively, of the National Research Council. The walls of the former building are constructed of hollow clay tiles with an exterior finish of painted stucco; the Halifax building is faced with sandstone slabs. Only the east side of each building was studied. Measurements made with the aid of rain-collecting cups on two buildings, one in Ottawa and one in Halifax, are now reported.
