Wind tunnel experiments for ‘Raindrop Detachment and Wind-Driven Transport’ (RD-WDT) process were conducted under improved lateral jetting induced by different wind velocities at various nozzle operating pressures. Wind-driven rainfalls were also incident on the windward and leeward slopes of 4° and 9° to have a broad variation in the angle of incidence. The objective of this experimental set-up was to distinguish the roles of both impact components of obliquely striking wind-driven raindrops on RD and wind on WDT. Results and discussion
