1. n. [Drilling Fluids]

A subjective description of a filter cake, especially its toughness, slickness and hardness. A mud engineer makes these observations, which are recorded on the mud report along with filtrate volume and cake thickness. With increasing experience, the engineer's observations can become less subjective.
