Title: Calculation of air decompression tables
Author: Dwyer, JV
Abstract: This report presents the theory of air decompression in didactic form, including definitions, theory of exponential saturation, and theory of tissue ratios. The report provides a procedure for step by step calculation of decompression schedules, together with the necessary tables and worksheets. The discussion touches on other methods of calculation, on one use of this method, and on the probable validity of this method. The recommendations are for programming a computer and for using the report as a text.
