Summary The main objectives of this work are to establish a relationship between solar radiation and equivalent temperatures for the radiation heat source (oven) to be used in the laboratory and to determine the impact of solar radiation on the absorption and evaporation potential of roofing tiles (glazed and unglazed). Based on the results obtained, it is justifiable to conclude that solar radiation do affect the evaporation and absorption potential of the glazed and unglazed tiles. There is a trend of decrease in both the absorption and evaporation potential of both tiles when exposed to decreasing solar radiation. The evaporation potential of the roof tiles is much higher than its absorption potential. This is clearly displayed in both types of tiles.
