Reduction of driving rain onslaught or a measure to a façade related to driving rain starts with the judgement (the design) of the total building and its direct surroundings.
Measurements of wind, rain and driving rain in situations which are comparable in simplicity with our building geometry and surrounding topography, and which are carried out with the same accuracy as ours, are necessary in order to validate method 2 (eq. 5.4) and the turbulent dispersion of drop trajectories in CFD (section 6.2).
Driving rain gauges with a large catchment area should be equipped with a wiper (section 4.2).
It is a pity that the building and renovation activities in the area from the TUE campus to the railway station in Eindhoven have such unfavorable results: the high buildings worsen the wind climate for pedestrians and cyclists. Moreover, the previously undisturbed fetch from which we benefitted a lot for our wind and rain measurements, has been changed.

The centre does not know the margin; the margin does know the centre. Ruth Oldenziel on Dutch television on 13 September 2001.
Multilingualism can be best advanced by (1) learning a second language before the age of 11 or 12 years, (2) learning (again) an other language after this age and (3) introducing a course on general linguistics in secondary education (especially in grammar schools).
It is misleading to call the classification of adjectives in the two groups ``qualities'' (``kvalitoj'') and ``relations/belongings'' (``rilatoj/apartenecoj'') in section 280-2 of Plena analiza gramatiko de Esperanto by K. Kalocsay en G. Waringhien (Rotterdam: UEA, 1985) a semantical classification, because the two groups overlap each other semantically according to the further classification in section 296, and because they are used to describe differences in word formation (sections 282 and 286-II).
