Abstract:

Experimental evidence verifies the sine-square law for the normal component of the hydrodynamic force acting on stranded cables. The side component appears to be proportional to the sine of the angle of inclination of the cable to the stream for very small angles, attaining a maximum value at an angle that depends upon the size and construction of the cable.
