AbstractThis report describes exploratory rain penetration tests on through-joints of the "open rain-screen" type as suggested in the design of this hut. It shows the wetting and air pressure patterns of various joint arrangements that evolve toward the final approach, and notes the differing effects of two types of rain simulators used in the laboratory program. The design and field testing of the "Angirraq" and its special joints will be reported separately.
