  • Drag coefficients of vibrating synthetic rope 

    Charnews, Daniel Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1971-09)
    The drag, amplitude, frequency tension, diameter and length of synthetic ropes vibrating because of vortex-induced forces, and net vibrating at different tensions were measured. Photographs were taken of the vortices. Drag ...
  • The dynamics of geometrically compliant mooring systems 

    Gobat, Jason I. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-06)
    Geometrically compliant mooring systems that change their shape to accommodate deformations are common in oceanographic and offshore energy production applications. Because of the inherent geometric nonlinearities, ...
  • Moored observations of shelfbreak processes at the inflow to and outflow from the Arctic Ocean 

    von Appen, Wilken-Jon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2013-02)
    Two high-resolution mooring arrays extending from the outer shelf to the mid continental slope are used to elucidate shelf-basin exchange at the inflow to and the outflow from the Arctic Ocean. Pacific Water entering the ...
  • The tangential drag of an axially oscillating cylinder 

    Tapscott, Susan Schultz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1975-09)
    An experimental investigation of the tangentiaì drag of an axially oscillating cylinder is presented. Deep-sea mooring cables are oscillated sinusoidally at ocean wave amplitudes and frequencies, and experimenta1 values ...
