ANALYSIS OF NONLINEAR TRANSIENT MOTION OF CABLES USING BOND GRAPH METHOD

The dynamic motion of underwater cable systems under hydrodynamic load is investigated using the system formulation of bond graph technique. The cable system can be a single mooring line or a multimooring system with nonuniform cables. The dynamic behavior of the cable systems due to fluid excitations, such as strumming force and surface waves is calculated in this paper by using digital simulation programs. Based on the results of this study, the author concludes that the complicated transient motion of underwater cable systems can be treated successfully with this technique.
