An effective simulation technique for describing the spreading properties of molecularly thin lubricant films on magnetic disks has been developed. We propose a molecular precipitation method that can simulate initial molecule arrangement of the films dip-coated onto the disks. Reptation and Rouse models as the model of the molecular motion, and molecular insertion and molecular precipitation methods as the method for putting molecules in initial positions were compared. From the results of the spreading profiles and diffusion coefficients, it has been revealed that the molecular precipitation method combined with the Rouse model is effective in simulating the spreading of the lubricant films.
