We propose a method for approximating the adhesion parameters in the Shan and Chen multicomponent, multiphase lattice Boltzmann model that leads to the desired fluid-solid contact angle. The method is a straightforward application of Young's equation with substitution of the Shan and Chen cohesion parameter and a density factor for the fluid-fluid interfacial tension, and the adhesion parameters for the corresponding fluid-solid interfacial tensions.
