Thermal imagery from composite material academic samples
The infrared camera recorded the thermal evolution on the surface of the inspected CFRP/GFRP sample for several seconds (approximately 16 to 17 s) at 120 and 145 frames/s sampling rate, from before applying a heat pulse, during the heat pulse and during cooling. The experiment was performed from the two faces of the specimen (providing shallow defect depths form the front face and deeper depths from the back face), and each sequence was labeled and saved into an independent file. Every .zip file contains a folder and files inside. Both are labeled as CFRP-samplename_facq-frequencyvalue_s-sideofinspection_Img-frames. This tagging scheme describes the sample name tested, the acquisition frequency used, the sample side of inspection taken, as well as the number of each frame (for .CSV files) within the sequence, and the whole number of frames from the image sequence (for the folders), respectively. We added heading to the Mendeley data files for Version 2.
