Abstract:

Towing tests of a freely trailed 50-foot flexible hose were conducted in the deep-water basin at the David Taylor Model Basin. Towing tensions and angles were recorded as a function of the towing speed. The angle data were corrected to standard conditions and compared with values predicted from theory. It was concluded that the hose will tow satisfactorily for the intended purpose and that the towing attitude may be predicted on the basis of two-dimensional cable theory. Author
