We present an algorithm for inserting an interface between the immiscible phases of a multicomponent lattice Boltzmann fluid which is based solely upon the appropriate continuum physics: stress boundary conditions and continuity of velocity. Results are presented for the algorithm when applied to static, neutrally buoyant drops. It is shown that the present algorithm gives a significant reduction in the spurious velocities which are reported for previous schemes and a concomitant improvement in the isotropy of the interface.
