Abstract:

Most of the lighting is by incandescent bulbs, often unshielded so as to give more light. The general level of illumination in work areas was found to be very low, generally much below acceptable levels. Lighting levels should be brought up to around 20 foot-candles. The replacement of incandescent bulbs by fluorescent fixtures would be desirable. Additional fixtures are needed in several locations, such as the radio room, the sick-bay area, the conning tower and over the torpedoes.
