Technical rept. 1 Jun 79-31 Aug 80,
CINCINNATI UNIV OH DEPT OF MECHANICAL AND INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
The finite segment modelling of a long flexible cable is discussed. An equivalent force system representing the fluid and gravitational forces exerted on a typical cable segment is determined. The fluid forces include inertia, drag, and hydrostatic buoyancy forces. Application of the results in computer algorithm development is also discussed. Author
