Abstract:

A general method for determination of the normal drag coefficient of a strumming flexible cable was developed. The technique considers the cable drag dependence on the flow induced cable vibrations and is applicable to all flexible cable designs including faired and nonfaired types. The technique is to aid in a study of static cable drag dependence on cable strumming as related to underwater suspension cables used with airborne ASW sonar systems.
