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.
The documents uploaded consist of data used to construct the graphs and tables in the thesis: "A computer-based justification for using the simple-bend test as the basis for predicting the performance of steel-hooked-end fibres in reinforced concrete". All data were obtained through simulation. The processes followed are described in the thesis.
Details of individual documents:
- CH3 Simulations - Data obtained from the wire drawing simulations, used to construct the residual stress profiles through the hooked end fibres
- Bend Test Results - Results of simulated bend tests conducted on the hooked end fibre
- Tensile Test Results - Results of simulated tensile tests conducted on the hooked end fibre
- Torsion Test Results - Results of simulated torsion tests conducted on the hooked end fibre
- Pull-out convergence - Results of simulated pull-out test conducted on the hooked end fibre, results of convergence studies used to validate the model
- Res Stress on Pullout - Results of simulations used to determine the effect of the residual stresses and chosen hardening law on behaviour during pull-out
-RBF Approx - Results of inverse problem solved to characterise the material properties of the hooked-end fibre using Radial Basis Functions constructed using data from the tensile, bend and pull-out tests. Comparison with baseline data.
