•An experimental validation of a model, developed for integration of DSF in Building Simulation tools, is given.
•The validation was based on heat removed by natural ventilation, which is the main parameter in passive cooling systems.
•A good degree of correlation was found between the predicted total driving pressure and the flow measurements.
•2D CFD analysis offered a detailed insight in flow reversal and recirculation phenomena.
