Abstract

Cable vibration caused by vortex shedding is an undesirable phenomenon in the design of a towed vehicle system or the mooring system of an ocean structure. Severe vibrations cause fatigue failure or a great increase in the drag coefficient of the cable. A series of experimental studies was carried out on airfoil and several other types of fairings. Normal and tangent drag coefficients were obtained for inclined faired cables, and effects on submerged depth and towing tension of the towing vehicle were calculated for the faired towing cable.
