Preliminary cable strumming experiments were conducted in an ocean field test. The measured average amplitudes were in the range 0.12-0.47 of the cable diameter and the measured values of Strouhal number were in the range 0.3-0.7. Tests were also conducted on cables with anti-strumming fairings. One of the fairings essentially eliminated strumming but the drag was very high.
