We introduce general Monte Carlo simulation methods for determining the wetting and drying properties of model systems. We employ an interface-potential-based approach in which the interfacial properties of a system are related to the surface excess free energy of a thin fluid film in contact with a surface. Two versions of this approach are explored: a… CONTINUE READING
