I would like to describe the heat capacity of copper using a piecewise polynomial function.
I have 4 ranges of temperatures and then 4 different polynomial functions.
I use four times MPTGEN and MP commands to inform about the 4 ranges of temperature and the 5 coefficients of the polynoms for these 4 ranges.
The problem is that ansys re-compute the heat capacity for the previous range of temperature each time I use a new range of temperature...
How can I do to keep in memory the first polynom, the second, etc...?
cuivre = 3 !(OFHC)
