Abstract : Comparisons are made between measurements taken during four series of dynamic cable experiments and simulations of the experimental events using two computer models, SEADYN and SNAP-LOAD, under the sponsorship of the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory. Three of the experiments were conducted in laboratory water tanks using an elastically stiff nylon cord and a soft silicon rubber cable. The fourth experiment was the deployment of a full-size instrumented subsurface mooring in 2,5000 feet of water off Kauai, Hawaii as part of the joint Mooring Dynamics Experiment (MDE).
