# Overwrite default distance between figure caption and text

I would like to set the distance between figure caption and text to be 24pt. Even though \belowcaptionskip is zero for report class, the following code produces a pdf where the distance between caption and text is non-zero. How can I overwrite default value of that distance?

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{mwe}
\pagenumbering{gobble}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics{example-image-a}
\caption{Some dummy caption.}
\end{figure}

\lipsum[1]

\end{document}


\belowcaptionskip is the space within the float below a caption (for the cases when the caption is above the table), your image shows that (in this case) the figure ended up as the last float in a top float area, the space between that and the top of the following text is \textfloatsep
