Abstract : The objective of this project was to prepare a report documenting the results from cable dynamic studies that were performed in support of the design of acoustic arrays for the High Gain Program. The studies were confined to two specific areas: (1) The dynamic response of cables under low tension; and (2) The prediction of vortex-induced vibrations of long cables in a shear current. Results from studies of cable dynamics are presented in a technical report prepared by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
