Abstract
Parametric analytical stability studies have demonstrated some fundamental effects of cable and body designs and their interactions on body behavior. Results demonstrate the existence of a mode dominated by cable configuration, a mode dependent on cable-body coupling effects, a mode primarily affected by body design and three modes unlikely to be of practical importance. Relative effects of primary cable and body design features are shown in root-locus form, and conclusions are drawn concerning their significance to the over-all system.
