Hello all, is it possible to read the deltaT field of a time step?

I want to do this because I suspect SLTS and CoEuler aren't changing the timestep size at all. In the code they always choose the maximum value between 1/deltaT and flux_rate/cell_volume, which will always yield the 1/deltaT, assuming you used a small enough value for you time step..

Someone who understands local Time stepping please come forward and explain me what is going on here ?

Best Regards
