Abstract

Shipping laterite nickel ore has a high risk of ship tilting or even capsizing caused by cargo liquefaction. This article analyzes the special nature of laterite nickel ore; explains the mechanism of nickel ore liquefaction caused by excessive moisture content based on the theory of soil mechanics; summarizes the three theoretical experimental methods for the justification of nickel ore liquefaction. The analysis results of laterite nickel ore liquefaction mechanism, provides a theoretical basis for effective solutions to prevent the shipwreck caused by liquefaction of laterite nickel ore, which has significant importance to ensure the essential safety.
