A generalized expression was developed for representing the hydrodynamic loading functions for bare and faired towcables in two-dimensional steady flow. The expression is sufficiently general to represent the many loading functions previously published. In practical applications, it can also represent experimental data obtained from tests of both bare and faired cables by using the proper coefficients. Because of its versatility, the form is recommended for use in a digital computer program with the basic differential equations of a flexible cable to solve problems involving the towcable tension and geometry of cable-towed systems.
