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.
Model results for the heating of a fiber-optic cable, to study the heating effect of the PVC tube around which the cable is wrapped to a coil. Input data: - incoming short-wave radiation; - air temperatures (to compute outgoing long-wave radiation and direct heat transfer to the air); - wind speed (to compute heat transport by the hot wire anemometer principle). Output data: - temperatures of the glass fiber inside the cable. Glass fiber temperatures are modeled for a cable that is adhered to a PVC tube and a cable in free air. The differences between both temperatures are compared to actual measurements of the glass fiber temperatures obtained by fiber-optic Distributed Temperature Sensing.
