Paper Abstract

Cables and tow-lines are often considered as a thread in modeling of various underwater towed systems. Typically, an external load per unit length of the thread in liquid is assumed specified. In the present paper, a new approach to the definition of the hydrostatic load per unit length of the thread is presented. It is shown that the obtained resultant load per unit length of the thread in liquid differs significantly from conventional weight minus buoyancy per unit length of the thread. To demonstrate the influence of the hydrostatic load, several problems are studied. All results are obtained analytically and compared with similar problems under weight less buoyancy of the thread.
