Analysis of Climate of Southwestern Nigeria for Building Design

2017 International Journal of Constructive Research in Civil Engineering  
Southwestern Nigeria lies within what has been classified as warm humid climate. This implies that design in terms of orientation of windows, quantity of sun radiation excluded from the indoor, choice of building materials for walls, windows, and roofs can be the same with or without little variation anywhere within the Southwestern Nigeria. There are variations of climate in various localities of the zone. Some of this variation may necessitate different design solutions. In this study, the
