    logo11 Liquefaction

    In the October 2018 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Liquefaction". The article discusses the shocking number of bulk carriers that have suddenly and catastrophically been lost at sea in recent years. The known or suspected cause of these tragic losses has been liquefaction of cargo. Despite efforts of the IMO, insurers, and trade associations, these losses continue. Installing a longitudinal bulkhead in each cargo hold would reduce the risk of liquefaction and the consequent loss of ships, cargo, and crews.
