Short summary
A complicating factor in describing the flow of two immiscible fluids in a porous medium is ensuring that experiments, theory, and simulation are all formulated at the same length scale. We have quantitatively analyzed the internal structure of a two-fluid system including the distribution of phases and the location of interfaces between phases. The data we have obtained allow for a clearer definition of capillary pressure at the averaged scale as a state function that describes the system.
