Abstract : The report is designed to be used in conjunction with Workman's presentation of the theoretical basis for the calculation of decompression schedules, EDU Report No. 6-65, to clarify the definitions and simplify the calculation procedure. An attempt has been made to explain verbally and graphically the basic concepts in areas known to be difficult for students of Workman's method. The report includes a step-by-step program designed to lead one through the calculations with a minimum of confusion, and a discussion of methods for shortening the time involved. The necessary tables and worksheet used in the calculations are also included. (Author)
