Process for laying a submarine cable

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #4498812.

An underwater electric power cable which has a minimum radius of curvature to which it can be bent without damage and which can be suspended between underwater suspension points in no greater than a predetermined length for a desired service life is layed by first laying a flexible steel rope along the desired underwater course and adjusting the rope position and length so that there are no curvatures thereof less than the minimum radius and no lengths thereof greater than the predetermined length, and then, the cable is layed alongside the rope so as to follow the configuration of the rope.
