I don't claim this will do exactly what you want, but it's a variation on this one way or another:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \setlength{\topskip}{18pt}
  2. \renewcommand{\@makechapterhead}[1]{% % Heading for \chapter command
  3. \vspace*{30mm} % This is in mm from the top margin, not the top of the page
  4. \begin{center}\LARGE
  5. \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
  6. \MakeUppercase\@chapapp
  7. \par\thechapter
  8. \par\nobreak
  9. \fi
  10. \addvspace{\topskip}
  11. \MakeUppercase{#1}
  12. \end{center}
  13. \par\nobreak
  14. \vskip 72\p@
  15. }

Be careful with redefinitions of internal commands. They depend highly on the used class and packages. Several classes and packages like the KOMA-Script classes, tudscr classes, memoir, titlesec and others provide user interfaces to configure the headings.
