Polymer integral equation theory is employed to calculate structural properties of undecane and short polymer liquids confined between parallel plates. A strong dependence is found on the strength of fluid-surface interactions which is consistent with solvation force measurements using both strongly attractive mica and weakly repulsive hydrocarbon surfaces.
