Sorry, must have missed the original request. You might want to see 
if you can get any of the data from the Pala test houses. They has 
been used for many studies, but one of the more relevant is:

R. Meldem and F. Winkelmann, 1995. Comparison of DOE-2 with 
Measurements in the Pala Test Houses, LBL-37979, Lawrence Berkeley 
National Laboratory, July, 1995.
