AbstractFrom late 1999 to early 2001, seventeen large-scale wall specimens were built for water entry investigation in IRC Dynamic Wall Testing facility (DWTF). The specimens consisted of five stucco-clad, five Exterior Insulation and Finish system (EIFS)-clad, four masonry-clad and three siding-clad assemblies (two hardboard and one vinyl). All specimens included a window, a duct and an electrical outlet receptacle. The composition of the specimens is described with wall section drawings and photographic records of their construction.
