A method for dynamic analysis of submerged cable system with elastic segments is presented based on the finite segment formulation in which elastic segments of a cable are described using shape functions of finite element method (FEM). The simulation model is tested by available experimental data to be computationally efficient and numerically stable. The method is also proved by the experimental results of the Small Oceanic Buoy System which has been developed by Oceanic Engineering Center of China.
