Ultrasonic guided-waves in quasi-isotropic and cross-ply composite beams using a finite element model

Dataset

Description

Ultrasonic guided-wave data taken from numerical evaluations of a finite element model (FEM) considering two composite beam structures and applying three noise levels in signal-to-noise ratio (SNR):

Quasi-isotropic carbon fiber composite beam (dimensions: 1m x 4mm x 2mm) with a [+45/-45/90/0]_s layup and a transverse crack (1mm deep at 0.40m from excitation) in it and the following noise levels (the file directories are specified in parentheses):
Noisefree (/Quasi-Isotropic_Crack/Noisefree/MeasurementCrack_NF.mat)SNR 10 dB (/Quasi-Isotropic_Crack/SNR_10dB/MeasurementCrack_10dB.mat)SNR 5 dB (/Quasi-Isotropic_Crack/SNR_05dB/MeasurementCrack_5dB.mat)
Cross-ply carbon fiber composite beam (dimensions: 1m x 3mm x 2mm) with [0_{2}/90]_s stacking sequence and a delamination (5mm long at 0.45m from excitation) in it and the following noise levels:
Noisefree (/Cross-Ply_Delam/Noisefree/MeasurementDelam_NF.mat)SNR 10 dB (/Cross-Ply_Delam/SNR_10dB/MeasurementDelam_10dB.mat)SNR 5 dB (/Cross-Ply_Delam/SNR_05dB/MeasurementDelam_5dB.mat)


FEM notes: solid elements (i.e. C3D8R in Abaqus) with the following dimensions: 0.5mm thick, 0.5mm width, and 0.2mm long. Damage modes are modeled by node duplication.

Ultrasonic tests data: 6-cycle Hanning windowed sinusoid centered at 100 kHz of frequency. Excitation signal at one end of the beam in the vertical direction. Sensor situated at 0.2m from the point of excitation and measuring for 720 \mu s. First antisymmetric mode (A0) is excited.
