Purpose. To choose a rational design of pipeline of deep water hydraulic hoist, which improves its fluidic characteristics to minimize the power consumption by the propellers of the carrier and eliminate the most hazardous aerohydroelastic instability.

Methodology. Technique and experimental program, which includes a detailed description of the test bench and test equipment has been developed. For the experiments we have used the existing wind tunnel and strain gage balance located in specialized aero hydrodynamic laboratories of Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University.

Findings. The analysis of the experimental results allowed choosing technically possible rational design of the pipeline of the hydraulic hoist at current stage of development of deep water mining. The feature of this design is that the pipeline system is locked with the cylindrical cover with gaps in areas of flanges. At the gaps of cover the installation of special cowlings reducing drag force has been proposed. Due to the series of experimental studies conducted for different types of cowlings their most suitable form has been selected and the geometric dimensions have been set.

Practical value. The selected design of deep water hydraulic hoist’s pipeline minimizes the carrier’s propellers power spent on dragging the pipeline in the water, which eventually results into decrease of the cost of the produced material, and also eliminates the possibility of the most dangerous types of flutter.
