Whether in freezing arctic tundra or blazing deserts, human beings have been figuring out how to adapt to hostile environments for centuries. New challenges emerge, however, as we venture to places where we are truly unable to exist without technology. When it comes to surviving underwater, a thorough knowledge of human physiology must be combined with a firm grasp of engineering principles, and Life Support Systems Design provides the student with an extensive grounding in both. A reference text for any beginning life support systems engineer, it also serves as a refresher course for more experienced divers. The text particularly emphasizes the effects of hyperbaric exposures on the diver’s ability to function, but it also explores underwater physics, including the transport of light, heat, and gases, in detail. It reviews the practical technological aspects of life support system engineering, such as gas storage and delivery systems, and environmental control design. Finally, once the textbook has been absorbed, the authors encourage the student to design a life support system for a specified application. Armed with the knowledge gained from Life Support Systems Design, it seems like a project any student would ace.
