Abstract : The development of a complete set of field equations describing the dynamic behavior of a towed cable is presented. The model includes inertial effects, as well as bending, torsional, and extensional rigidity. The resulting field equations are a generic set of 13 coupled, nonlinear, partial differential equations in time and unstretched cable scope. Hydrodynamic loading and added mass are left as user-defined functions.... Field equations, Differential equations, Towed cable effects.
