Dynamika liny odwijającej się z ruchomego obiektu latającego

Tadeusz Kuźmicewicz
In the paper is considered the dynamics of a cable winding off from a reel placed on a flying object. The longitudal axis of the reel is parallel to the longitudal axis of the object. The cable dynamics is described by hyperbolic-type non-linear partial differential equations. The set of equations obtained is reduced to ordinary differential equations, and numerical calculations are done for various velocities of the flying object and various reel radii. As a result of the calculations, the maximum tension of the cable is expressed in terms of the kinematic and geometric parameters of the object.
