Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Purpose of the test campaign: the purpose of these experiments was to investigate the effect of material of the adherends on mode I fracture behaviour of bonded joints. The Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) specimens with different adherend material(s) were tested. Test equipment: all tests were performed on a 20 kN tensile test machine. The crack length was measured by means of a Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system or a camera system. The applied force and displacement were measured by the tensile test machine, and also sent as inputs to the Digital Image Correlation (DIC) system or to the camera, in order to facilitate synchronization of the data.
