The simulation data pertains to an aluminum specimen that is 1.6mm thick and has been subjected to varying degrees of cracks. To generate and excite waves, two points that are 150mm apart have been selected. The data has been arranged according to the length of the crack, which ranges from 10mm to 70mm, with different levels of penetration (0.5-1.6mm) being taken into account, while keeping the width of the crack fixed at 2mm for all cases. This data can be used to analyze the behavior of the aluminum specimen under different crack conditions, and to develop models for predicting its structural integrity. The different degrees of crack severity and penetration levels can provide insights into how the specimen responds to external stresses and how the crack propagates. Such insights can be invaluable for designing more robust and reliable materials and structures.
