DYNAMICS OF AN UMBILICAL CABLE FOR UNDERGROUND BORE-WELL APPLICATIONS
A general model for an umbilical cable for underground bore-well applications is considered. The response of one-degree-of-freedom, nonlinear system under external excitation forces and the effect of the parameters 2, β and f on the excited system are investigated. Variation of the parameter 2 leads to multi-valued amplitudes and hence to jump phenomena. The simulation results are achieved using MATLAB 7.12.0 (R2011a) Simulink.
