Diving Physics with Bubble Mechanics and Decompression Theory in Depth

$45.00 each


Bruce R. Wienke


The intent here is to present a working view of physical phase mechanics, then followed by application to decompression theory in diving. It is directed toward the diver and reader with a basic understanding of decompression. Basically, the mechanics of tissue gas exchange, bubbles and nucleation, supersaturation, perfusion and diffusion, and related mechanisms are discussed.

The target audience is the doctor or physiologist, physicist, chemist, mathematician, engineer or biologist by training and also the commercial diver, technical diver, instructor, hyperbaric technician, underwater researcher, looking for greater detail.

Extended in this book are Wienke's previous texts, Basic Decompression Theory and Application, Hyperbaric Physics and Decompression Theory in Depth, and Basic Diving Physics and Application.
