    Menisci of the truncated and shifted Lennard-Jones fluid between parallel planar walls are investigated by molecular dynamics simulation. Thereby, the characteristic energy of the unlike dispersive interaction between fluid molecules and wall atoms is systematically varied to determine its influence on the contact angle. On the basis of the present simulation results, fluid-wall interaction potentials can be adjusted to contact angle measurements.
