A comprehensive review of the research investigation on the prediction of the motion of a cable system under hydrodynamic loading is presented. By chronologically and systematically presenting the past studies, the state of the art on the formulation of analytical models applicable to a wide range of problem areas is emphasized. Attempts to predict the steady-state configuration of a two-dimensional cable have been made since World War I. Recent studies have included the dynamic response of these systems to external excitation. The most general problem, which appears to be of widespread practical importance, requires a three-dimensional formulation. Some attempts at this approach have been pursued with limited success. The critical aspect of an analytical model is the inclusion of the hydrodynamic loading forces acting on the cable. A discussion of the physical nature of these forces and survey of existing analytical models for the loading function is included. A comparison with the limited experimental data available is also presented.
