Mystery of the cargo ships that sink when their cargo suddenly liquefies

Mystery of the cargo ships that sink when their cargo suddenly liquefies | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Think of a dangerous cargo and toxic waste or explosives might come to mind. But granular cargoes such as crushed ore and mineral sands are responsible for the loss of numerous ships every year. On average, ten “solid bulk cargo” carriers have been lost at sea each year for the last decade.

Solid bulk cargoes – defined as granular materials loaded directly into a ship’s hold – can suddenly turn from a solid state into a liquid state, a process known as liquefaction. And this can be disastrous for any ship carrying them – and their crew.
