Pagination or Media Count:
Theoretical heating requirements for the maintenance of thermal balance in a diver at depth and the personnel transfer capsule of the Mark 2 deep dive system are considered. The effects of radiation, conduction, forced and natural convection, metabolic heat generation and respiratory heat loss are considered and heat replacement requirements for various configurations of diver garments are presented as functions of ambient pressure, temperature and PTC operating conditions. Thermal requirements for heating the PTC itself are also considered. Author
