A FIRST ORDER THEORY FOR PREDICITNG THE STABILITY OF CABLE TOWED AND TETHERED BODIES WHERE THE CABLE HAS A GENERAL CURVATURE AND TENSION VARIATION

The cable-body system is treated analytically by considering it to be essentially a cable problem, where the body provides end and auxiliary conditions. Moreover, the cable itself is considered to be composed of cable segments--each with its own mean tension and angle. These segments are then matched--one to the next--by the end conditions of displacement and slope, thus yielding a physical model for a cable with a general shape and tension variation. (Author)
