Abstract
A paramount problem in the operation of submersibles (47) and divers in cold water is the provision of adequate energy for thermal comfort for the crew or individual diver. This problem is particularly acute in the case of lockout submersibles in which several personnel are carried to and from an underwater work site under compressed gas conditions. The paper describes a general biophysical model known as Cold Diver which has been used to calculate the steady-state heat requirements for thermal comfort for all crew members of such a system in various scenarios of operation.
