The work proved computer photometric method for determining the water concentration in the line textile samples. The aim of the article is the testing of computer visualization techniques to determine the sorption characteristics of textile structural components. The main result is the determination of the actual empirical distribution functions in linear liquid samples. For this purpose one of the boundaries of the test material was set in contact with coloured water. Thanks to the diffusion properties of the material, water spread along the sample changing its brightness. Using of visualization enabled to determine the concentration in the textile sample. Experimental regressive dependence of concentration in a sample of different factors was developed. The proposed concentration dependence of the water from the coordinates and time has the form of exponential function. Exponent index is a characteristic feature of this material, which is characterized its absorption properties. Constants that describe the intensity of a linear sorption of the sample of material were defined. The results can be used in predicting of the water distribution and process modeling of discrete material structure.
