This option on the Properties menu provides access to the Process Parameters panel. In addition, this panel is used to specify energy equation boundary conditions for the default solid. The default solid wall is the boundary over which no conditions are specified through the gridfile.

For polymeric material this panel will also have additional information to read in, inspect, and modify the direction and magnitude of the gravitation acceleration vector. The direction and magnitude of the gravity vector is read in here. This data is used to model the effects of body force and buoyancy on flow and temperature fields. The data is also used when solving isothermal flow problems with gravity effects and non-isothermal problems with buoyancy effects. Modifying the value in Acceleration Due to Gravity can change the Rayleigh number.
