Solid bulk shipping: cargo shift, liquefaction and the transportable moisture limit

Abstract:

If some solid bulk cargoes such as concentrates, unprocessed nickel ores and iron ore fines contain sufficient moisture, then cargo compaction during a voyage may cause liquefaction. This has been known to result in major cargo displacement ('cargo shift'), causing the vessel to capsize. This has resulted in a number of fatalities. To provide context to this interdisciplinary problem, an overview of the key considerations is presented, which includes: (i) a summary of the wide range of fac...
