Large datasets on dynamic properties of carbon fibre/shape memory polymer composites under various total and local temperature field
Shape memory polymers and their composites as a class of promising smart materials have been widely applied in aerospace engineering, soft robotics and healthcare fields. Mechanical properties of composites based on shape memory polymers however are sensitive to temperature and loading methods. The data paper presents the dynamic properties of carbon fibre reinforced shape memory polymer composite under various thermal total and local fields. The thermal fields were provided by attached electrothermal film and tested by the thermal imaging camera. The initial velocity was loaded by knocking vibration excitation and the response velocity was measured by Laser Doppler Velocimetry. The raw datasets obtained could support further study in the area and development of carbon fibre reinforced shape memory polymer composites.
