In this paper, we develop a finite element model for a cable suspended in water. Global existence and uniqueness of solutions of the truncated system is shown for a slightly simplified equation describing the motion of a cable having negligible added mass and supported by fixed end-points. Based on this, along with well known results on local existence and uniqueness of solutions for symmetrizable hyperbolic systems, we conjecture a global result for the initial-boundary value problem. © 2000… CONTINUE READING
