Samples of filter cake from a double alkali sulfur dioxide control system were tested by use of methods commonly employed to evaluate the engineering properties of soils. The particle size distribution of the material was similar to that of silt, and its behavior more nearly resembled that of a cohesionless, rather than cohesive, soil. Neither moisture content nor compactive effort exerted much influence on the resulting dry density, and the strength of the material was predominantly frictional in nature with a small cohesion intercept. The load-deformation-time response indicates that short-term volume changes will occur relatively rapidly and long-term volume changes will be small. The permeability was found to vary greatly with changes in density.
