Abstract:

A method by which a particular set of coupled ordinary nonlinear differential equations may be solved numerically is presented. The nonlinearity is present due to the quadratic terms present in the derivatives. An example is given to illustrate the problem when applied to a model of a cable towed body moving through a viscous fluid.
