The high frequency shear mechanical behaviour of cellulose pulp/ watersystems during theprocess of drying from 3 percent solids to total dryness has been non-destructively and continuously monitored by the technique of ultrasonic impedometry. Unusual fibre/water interactions have been detected at both extremes of the concentration range studied. These interactions are given interpretation in molecular terms.
