Abstract:

For the design of a VDS system that employs a towcable and a towed body, it is necessary to predict the maximum towcable tension and the trail and depth of the towed body. This memorandum discusses the design and use of a nomograph that was developed so that the relationships among cable functions and towcable tensions, towcable lengths, and the horizontal and vertical projected distances between the towed body and some other point of interest may be more readily available. The trail and depth of the towed body can also be found. In applying the nomograph, only arithmetical operations are used. Author
