Default Effect of body forces

Sir ,

I am trying to get the effect of gravity in the solution. I have specified gravity in the operating conditions. Is there any other thing to do? Should i reduce the under relaxation factor for body forces?

It is all right, specify an acceleration due to gravity and additionaly you can discretize pressure by body-force-weighted scheme. good luck
