Potential liquefaction of some cargoes (Nickel ore, iron ore, ...) is a major risk for the maritime industry. The difficulties to simulate accurately the behaviour of these materials as well as their interaction with a bulk carrier model leaded us to use a non-Newtonian highly viscous fluid to model a liquefied ore. An experimental approach is presented in this paper. Roll responses of a ship model as well as details on the internal free surface behaviours are investigated for different loading conditions: solid cargo, fresh water and viscous fluids.
