This model demonstrates the use of Internal Clocks in/on a Container.
In some situations, you may wish to use different timesteps in different portions of your model. This is useful, for example, if the processes represented in one portion of your model occur rapidly and hence require a small timestep to model accurately, while processes represented in the rest of your model occur much more slowly, such that a larger timestep can be used.
Smaller time steps can be specified for a particular Container by assigning the Container an Internal Clock. The "Internal_Clock" container below provides an example of specifying an Internal Clock for a Container. Double-click on this Container to see the "Properties" dialog and the internal clock specification on the "Internal Clock" tab.
