The datasets represent the raw data collected for the "Incompressible Squeeze-Film Levitation" paper. 

The datasets are named according to the following convetion: FluidType_MassNumber_CollectionDate_InputVoltage-V-TrialNumber

The experiments were conducted for two fluids: air and purified liquid. Three different masses were utilized: 64g, 101g, 122g. up to five trials were collected for each mass-fluid combination.

Each dataset file consists of 3 columns of data; the first column represents time, the second column represents the measured input vibration ampltiude and the third column represents the measured levitation distance.

The input vibration is measured from the bottom of the transducer and the ratio between the vibration of the top to the bottom is 2.
