Grahic Jump Location
Cable-buoy system showing fast VIV and slow drift
Grahic Jump Location
Schematics of two cable applications (a) cable suspension (b) cable-buoy system. Three-dimensional dynamic response (solid curves) from equilibrium (dashed curves) is described by U and projected onto the Serret-Frenet triad {t⁁,n⁁,b⁁} defined by the equilibrium configurations
Grahic Jump Location
Steady state cross-flow VIV during lock-in predicted without considering the changes in mean drag. In this example, V=1.24 m/s,L=20 m,D=0.0155 m,Ḡ=0.3763,F̄=1.0027, and CL0=0.28
Grahic Jump Location
Coupled slow and fast dynamic response of the cable suspension in uniform cross-flow resulting from variations in the mean drag; (a) cross-flow (VIV) response, (b) in-line (drift) response, (c) mean drag coefficient
Grahic Jump Location
Coupled slow and fast response of cable-buoy system resulting from variations in mean drag. In this example, V=0.418 m/s,L=31 m,M=10 kg,Ḡ=0.3985,F̄=0.8829, and buoy diameter 0.6 m; (a) cross-flow response of the cable at an antinode, (b) in-line (drift) response of the cable at S=L, (c) tangential response of the buoy, (d) mean drag coefficient
