Abstract:

This report describes the faired-cable model, the towing dynamometer, and the test procedures gives sample curves of normal and tangential forces versus submergence for various speeds presents tabulated loading functions gives plots of the normal and tangential loading functions versus cable angle and a plot of drag coefficient versus Reynolds number and provides the mathematical expressions derived for the loading functions.
