<p>These files contain the data/software that was obtained/used in a research project using an<br> Optical Backscatter Reflectometer (OBR) to obtain strain data of curing epoxy.</p> <p>Moulds of different length's were filled with liquid epoxy. In the middle of the epoxy, along the<br> longest axis of the mould, the optical fibre sensed the strain acting upon the fibre due to the<br> volume shrinkage.</p> <p>Additionally temperature probes were used to monitore the temperature in the epoxy.<br> For the 40 cm and the 60 cm experiments these probes were arranged along the fibre, for the<br> other experiments the probes were distributed randomly in the epoxy.</p> <p>Two Differential Scanning Calorimetry experiments were performed with temperature programs like the mean temperature of the 10 cm and the 60 cm curing experiments.</p> <p><br> See "001_Explanation of the data.txt" for a detailed description of the data.<br> Please, see the "*.txt"-files in the respective subfolders for additional information.</p> <p>ATTENTION: The archives that contain the raw-measurement files are several GB big. It may take a while to open these.</p> <p>The results are to be published and the journal/article-title will be added as soon as possible.</p> <p>The software is published under the GNU General Public License, version 3.<br> For the data the stated license is valid.</p>
