Abstract : This report covers the procedure and parameters used by UNIVAC to calculate repetitive diving decompression tables. The report concludes: (1) that table testing should be selective but extensive; (2) that the computer coding should be modified; and (3) that the depth ratio should be examined carefully. The report makes recommendations on: (1) table testing; (2) calculation of repetitive tables; and (3) modification of the present calculation procedure.
