The dynamic behavior of strumming hydrophone cables associated with air-launched sonobuoy surveillance systems is reported for a 200 to 3000 Reynolds number range. The study techniques and the scaling laws have application wherever underwater flexible cables are employed. Results are reported in four specific areas experimental diagnostic techniques, cable tuning effects, frequency scaling law, and dynamic motion analysis.
