Abstract: Solar radiation is the main source of heat energy that raises the temperature of an adobe room mostly habituated by people in the rural areas of Northern part of Nigeria and in many other rural areas of the world. For this, it is important to study the temperature pattern inside the Adobe room. In this work a simulation using Sci-Lab is been carried out in order to predict the temperature pattern inside the adobe room in the work, an analytical model using Complex Finite Fourier Transform (CFFT) technique for the periodic solution is performed using SCILAB Software. The simulation model was also validated; again from the simulation, it was found that the deviation between the experimental and model for inside room temperature was only 10 percent. This shows that it is possible to predict the pattern of inside temperature for an adobe room by using Sci-Lab.
