Abstract Surface forces nonuniformity within the volume of a capillary system for a given structure has been examined in terms of its effect on a wetting fluid distribution. This approach enables the distribution for a porous body with a uniform structure to be quantified using a specific function for the pore volume size distribution. The surface forces nonuniformity effect is illustrated using a fibrous structure impregnated with molten copper.
