We extend a recently proposed ternary free-energy lattice Boltzmann model with high density contrast Phys. Rev. Lett. 120, 234501 (2018) by incorporating wetting boundaries at solid walls. The approaches are based on forcing and geometric schemes, with implementations optimized for ternary (and, more generally, higher-order multicomponent) models. Advantages and disadvantages of each method are addressed by performing both static and dynamic tests, including the capillary filling dynamics of a liquid displacing the gas phase and the self-propelled motion of a train of drops. Furthermore, we measure dynamic angles and show that the slip length critically depends on the equilibrium value of the contact angles and whether it belongs to liquid-liquid or liquid-gas interfaces. These results validate the model capabilities of simulating complex ternary fluid dynamic problems near solid boundaries, for example, drop impact solid substrates covered by a lubricant layer.
