Abstract : A state-of-the-art study was made of submarine electro-mechanical cable technology. These are ocean cables which include electrical cables with special strain members. The purpose of the study was to define areas of deficiencies so that development programs could be initiated in selected areas. The approach included a literature search, and extensive interviews with electro-mechanical cable manufacturers and electro-mechanical cable users. Engineers and scientists of various disciplines from the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory participated in the study. Areas of study include: Mechanical properties, Electrical properties, Handling, Terminations and hardware, Maintenance and repair, Manufacturing, and History of electro-mechanical cable development.
