In recent years there has been an increased emphasis on ocean exploration by both government and private agencies of the world. A large portion of these marine activities involve human occupancy of pressure vessels, also known as hyperbaric chambers. The most common chambers of this type are diving submersibles and diver decompression chambers. As their' use by private agencies has grown, so has the requirement that the marine construction codes include more definitive guidelines in design and production of windows for the occupants to view thru the chamber walls.
