Force, torque, pressure, and temperature data for all experiments. Files labeled "FT_T....txt" contain force, torque, and temperature data, "MP_T....txt" contains pressure and vertical stage motion data. All .csv files contain the average curves for tests as described in Table 1 of the manuscript. SampleOverview.xlsx contains an overview of sample compaction information. CurveDisplay.m is a simple Matlab code designed to enable quick visualization of the force/torque data.
