Description

The dataset contains two sets of climate files for hygrothermal simulations of building envelopes in Brussels: a long-term 30-year climate file, and a generic climate-based Moisture Reference Year (MRY). Fles of the outdoor climate (measured), and of the indoor climate (computed) are included in the dataset. The climate files can be used in HAM software, e.g. Delphin or WUFI. The process of gathering and preparing the data has been described in detail in the article 'Climate data for hygrothermal simulations of Brussels' in 'Data in Brief' (2022). The WAC-files contain the outdoor climate, whereas the CCD-files contain the indoor climate (for Delphin). The outdoor climate data originates from the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMI). The RMI should always be cited upon the use of these data, as well as the related article in 'Data in Brief' (2022).
