This paper reviews current techniques for modeling the response of cable systems subjected to the dynamic effects of the ocean environment. The lumped parameter, finite element, and weighted residual methods are compared in terms of mechanisms for incorporating environmental effects. Each method is compared for its particular advantages and shortcomings from both numerical and application standpoints. Several examples of applications are given. The methods are compared to themselves and to experimental results for a series of laboratory and ocean experiments.
