Viscous effects for the structural model of a towfish system

Blanco, Max (2010) Viscous effects for the structural model of a towfish system At Oceans '10, United States. 20 - 23 Sep 2010.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The vibration of structural members towed astern
of a surface vessel has been modelled variously by strings and
beams, neither of which accounts for the viscosity of water.
The work of Cortinez and Laura accounts for viscosity as a
damper. An application of their method to towfish systems and
the vibrational modes which result are described.
