This dataset comprises the results of the hydraulic fracturing test: raw and unprocessed video files, fluid pressures, stress intensity factors, and fracture velocities. Conditions for each experiment are indicated in the description with gelatin stiffness: L for low stiffness, M for medium stiffness, H for high stiffness, and VH for very high stiffness. Total 9 cases of the experiment, 3 cases of homogeneous gelatin samples and 6 cases of layered gelatin samples, were investigated.
