The uploaded files contain the energy dispersive X-ray diffraction (EDXRD) data from experiment EE12205, carried out at the Diamond Light Source (I12:JEEP). The supplied files detail the crack tip strain fields at each load step ranging from Kmin to Kmax at six crack tip positions relative to the overload location. Measurements were made before, during and after the overload event at both (a) R = 0.1 and b) R = 0.4. File descriptions/meta data is given in file_list_EDXRD.csv. The data was processed using pyXe and can be read, re-analysed and plotted using the same software suite (
