I've simulated a solid metal cluster of gold fcc100
And a surface Platinum in fcc111 using a classical mechanical approach.
Do you think i could get the surface free energies(the ones to use in determining the Wulff shape) from periodic boundary conditions and if so how? Im really confused, i need to make an approximation of the height and width of the melted particle so i would like the energy in the UP/z direction.

The gold cluster is cubic at the initial state btw.
