ANALYSIS OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL STEADY-STATE BEHAVIOR OF EXTENSIBLE FREE-FLOATING CABLE SYSTEMS
An analysis is given for the two-dimensional steady-state behavior of extensive free-floating cable systems. The analysis includes the differential equations of equilibrium for an extensible cable and the iteration schemes for the equilibrium system drift velocity and surface buoy draft. Based on this analysis, a FORTRAN IV program, FF2E, has been written. The program allows the cable system to have an were caused by rainfall. Less than half of them led to intermediate bodies. The program works well for the large majority of cases of practical interest.
