Abstract
At present, the deployment of lockout submersibles in deep diving operations is severely limited by several problems, one of which is crew member heat loss. This problem is particularly acute for lockout divers and those individuals under compressed gas conditions. The paper describes a biophysical model, Cold Diver, for calculating the steady-state thermal comfort requirements of crew members in various operations.
