Abstract

A numerical approach for predicting the snap loading of marine cables operating in alternating taut-slack conditions is presented. The modelling is based upon the lumped-mass-and-spring method with modifications to take into account the bilinear axial stiffness of the cable. The resulting governing equations are integrated in the time domain using the modified Euler method. Numerical examples are given and comparisons of the numerical results and the experimental results available are made which demonstrate the validity of the present method.
