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, thereby limiting speed and depth.
However, these forces can be altered by changing the geometry of the cable. This white paper offers a brief introduction into these “fairing” methods, which allow for deeper towing at higher speeds.
