Abstract We present a Monte Carlo study of the bond- and site-directed (oriented) percolation models in (d+1) dimensions on simple-cubic and body-centered-cubic lattices, with 2≤d≤7. A dimensionless ratio is defined, and an analysis of its finite-size scaling produces improved estimates of percolation thresholds. We also report improved estimates for the standard critical exponents. In addition, we study the probability distributions of the number of wet sites and radius of gyration, for 1≤d≤7.
