Abstract

Several calculation techniques are developed for estimating the performance of the towed vehicle. The motions of the towing vessel, cable and towed vehicle are represented by a set of simultaneous equations, and unstable motions might occur in the system. A theoretical analysis is applied to this problem and it was found that the viscous force acting on the cable plays the dominant role.
