Six Fairing Solutions to Improve Cable Performance

Any object that moves through liquid is subject to hydrodynamic forces. When towing, these forces will exert themselves on ropes and cables, as well as the towed body itself.

The hydrodynamic forces on towed cables can be altered by changing the geometry of the cable, typically its cross-sectional shape. This white paper offers a brief introduction into these 'fairing' methods, which allow for deeper and faster towing.
