Abstract : The Study of One-Atmosphere Manned Underwater Structures(SOAMUS) has accomplished three primary tasks: (1) identification and listing of various roles and missions which have been advanced for one-atmosphere manned underwater structures; (2) identification and assessment of structure concepts which have been developed by government agencies and industry, and which meet parameters established for the study; and (3) analyses of costs and sensitivities of structures concepts in terms of such parameters as operating depth, manning levels, mission durations, hull configurations, offshore distances, etc. The final report is presented in three volumes. Volume II contains the detailed supporting data which was developed during the course of the study, and which served as a basis for the findings reported in Volume I. An extensive list of references and a bibliography is also included. (Author)
