Abstract:

This report presents a Users Manual for the computer program DYNTOCABS DYNamics of TOwed CABle Systems. The program is designed to predict steady-state configurations, and linear and nonlinear dynamic motions of submerged and partially submerged towed systems. These systems may consist of a single towing cable or a branched system of cables, but no closed loops may be formed. Each branch may be terminated with a towed sphere or a towed vehicle. This manual provides instruction for using DYNTOCABS to study such cable systems. It also provides sample input and output data.
