It is shown that the cohesiveness and plastic strength of moist materials and their thermophysical and drying properties are determined by the ratio of capillary-mobile and capillary-immobile moisture forms and natural properties of materials which can be best estimated based on the least capillary moisture or the maximum molecular moisture capacity which are the most significant aqueous-physical parameters of materials. Formulas are proposed for the calculation of the dependence of cohesiveness and plastic strength of materials on their moisture content and drying sensitivity, as well as formulas for the calculation of thermophysical properties of moist materials.
