A theoretical analysis has been made of capillary phenomena, based on the application of lattice models of pore structure and mathematical methods of percolation theory. A study has been made of the process of forcing mercury into a lattice of cavities and throats, simulating a pore space with alternating expansions and constrictions of the pore channels. An equation is derived for calculating the degree of saturation of the pores, with allowance for pore interconnection effects. A new method is proposed for interpreting mercury porosimetry data in calculating the pore size distribution function.
