title = "A mathematical model for the motion of a towed pipeline bundle",

abstract = "A simple mathematical model for the motion of a pipeline bundle being towed using the Controlled Depth Tow Method (CDTM) is constructed and analysed. When the forces exerted by the sea on the bundle are neglected the model predicts that the bundle is neutrally stable and that its motion involves two different timescales. When these forces are not neglected the model predicts that the bundle will always be stable if the tension in the bundle at its downstream end is sufficiently large.",
