We present Surface Evolver computer simulations for two-dimensional (2d) foams in which the contact angle at which liquid films and Plateau borders meet is non-zero. We determine the average coordination number Z of bubbles over a wide range of finite contact angles θ and liquid fractions ϕ. We find a linear scaling of Z for values of ϕ between about 0.07 and 0.15, corroborating previous data obtained for the case of zero contact angle. The results highlight the importance of attractive bubble interactions for 2d foams.
