Mystery of the cargo ships that sink when their cargo suddenly liquefies
Solid bulk cargoes are typically “two-phase” materials as they contain water between the solid particles. When the particles can touch, the friction between them makes the material act like a solid (even though there is liquid present).

When the friction is reduced to zero, the material acts like a liquid (even though the solid particles are still present).
