Numerical solutions to some industrial problems

Abstract:

The particular type of industrial problem discussed is that which reduces to a hyperbolic partial differential equation with singularities.

Two main problems are considered. The first is that of finding the position of a neutrally buoyant cable being towed behind a ship which is executing horizontal transverse motions. Both the method of characteristics and a finite difference method are used to find a solution and both give satisfactory results. The algorithms are explained and the...
