Abstract:

The report reviews initial progress in an ongoing study of underwater work measurement. The objective of the study is to determine new ways of defining and measuring diver work effectiveness, and to develop measurement techniques for general application in research and operational programs. Examination of measurement techniques was divided into three main areas procedural, physiological and psychological. The report describes the development of a pipe construction task and a laboratory bioinstrumentation system. In addition, it presents the results of a series of sub-studies dealing with work methodology and physiological response underwater. The studies were conducted in the diving tank of the UCLA Underwater Research Facility. A summary of findings and recommendations is included. Author
