    The gravity self-unloading system is a time-tested means of discharging cargo from bulk carriers, with sloping cargo-hold walls designed to facilitate material flow. While a low slope angle is sufficient for unloading free-flowing material such as dry sand, a higher angle is required to effectively discharge coarser material like wood chips – at the expense of reduced storage space. Since the slope angle is decided at the vessel design phase, bulk carriers are typically limited to transporting one type of cargo.
