Краткий обзор статьи: Dynamics of spreading of viscous non – volatile fluid droplets on surfaces is modelled using a solid – on – solid model, which is studied with Monte Carlo simulations. Tendency for dynamical layering and surface attraction are in part embedded into the effective dynamics of the model. This allows a description of the spreading process with a single parameter, which strongly influences the morphology of the droplets. The results qualitatively reproduce many experimentally observed density profiles for polymeric fluids, including rounded droplet shapes, and dynamical layering.
