Decompression Algorithm

This course is designed specifically for technical divers and instructors who are interested in understanding how decompression algorithm is implemented based on the Bühlmann’s model and gradient factors.  The literature starts with a revision on the evolution of decompression theory, tissue compartments, half times, M-value lines before then furthering onto the algorithm of decompression stops iteration, the impact of gas mixes other than air on decompression plan and time, as well as the use of gradient factors for manipulating conservatism.  Eddie, being a hands-on software engineer for over 15 years who has been working on the software design of dive computer and decompression planner, is able to explain decompression procedures and its application to technical diving in a mathematical, algorithmic and programmatic perspective.
