In the IDF Editor, you can modify the Site Ground Temperature, Site Deep Ground Temperature, and the Site Simple Factor Model Ground Temperature. How do you modify the Site Surface Ground Temperature?

My outputs show the Site Surface Ground Temperature as being a constant 13C for all months of the year. I would like to model if possible the ground heat flow to the undisturbed site surface ground temperature.

You can read about the slab program preprocessor in the auxiliary programs document. Also there are examples of setting up the site surface ground temperature object inputs. I also think there is a way to link the slab preprocessor to the simulation but I have not used that yet.
