# gp.temp.change

Syntax

f := gp.temp.change(gp)
gp.temp.change(gp) := f

Get/set the temperature change of the grid point since the last mechanical cycle. If changed, the temperature of the grid point will be adjusted to match the difference.

For example, if the temperature is 10 and the temp change is 0.1 (which implies that previous temperature is 9.9), then if the value was set to 1.0 the temp change would be 1.0 and the grid point temperature would be 10.9.

The effect of the accumulated temperature change will be seen in the model after the next mechanical step.

Returns: f - the amount of temperature change since the last thermal/mechanical coupling f - the amount of temperature change since the last thermal/mechanical coupling gp - a zone gridpoint pointer
