STATICS AND DYNAMICS OF ANCHORING CABLES IN WAVES

An analysis is presented of the statics and dynamics of mooring cables. The analysis includes effects that have not been considered by any previous investigator and corrects certain errors that have been perpetuated by all previous investigators. In addition to the discussion of hitherto unsuspected physical effects, this paper also includes a discussion of the numerical computation of buoy-cable systems in waves.
