  • The proposed dataset aims to benchmark the performance of SfM software under varying conditions - different environments, different lighting, image positions, camera setups, etc. Images of six objects are provided with varying shapes, sizes, surface textures and materials. The dataset is divided in two main parts, together with ReadMe files: - Objects and environments data - images from each of the objects both from indoor and outdoor environments are provided. - Capturing setups data - images from one of the objects are provided captured with different setups. Both with and without using a turntable, using one and multiple light sources and different amount of images All images are captured using Canon 6D DSLR camera. All images contain EXIF data with used camera parameters. A ground truth high resolution scanned of each of the objects is provided for verifying the accuracy of the SfM reconstructions.

  • This study investigated collaborative reflection within practical settings on a university-based coach education program. Data were collected through focus group interviews with undergraduate sports coaching students and individual interviews with module instructors. The sample consisted of 17 sports coaching students (14 males, 3 females, mean age=24.24, SD=3.01) enrolled on the first year of a sport and exercise undergraduate degree at a UK university. The university instructors were three males (mean age=38, SD=11) with an average of 8.33 (SD=4.73) years of experience teaching in higher education. Focus group and individual interviews were conducted using a semi-structured design which provided a general framework of questions whilst enabling the flexibility to probe into responses and gain detailed descriptions of thoughts and experiences (Hall & Getchell, 2014). The focus group interview guide was devised by drawing on relevant literature with open-ended questions that address the research topic in terms of experience, behaviour, and context (Smith & Sparkes, 2016). The individual interviews were based on analyses of focus group data in addition to key concepts arising from relevant literature. Interview data were transcribed and analysed thematically using Braun and Clark’s (2006) six-step process: (1) familiarisation with the data; (2) Generation of initial codes; (3) Searching for themes; (4) Reviewing themes; (5) Defining and naming themes; (6) Producing the report. By adopting a reflexive process of moving forwards and backwards through the data, the analysis was produced through the intersection of theoretical assumptions, disciplinary knowledge, research skills and experience, and the content of the data themselves (Braun & Clarke, 2016). Adopting an abductive approach to data analysis, we considered both the impact of data on theory, and also the impact of theory on data (Partington et al., 2015), as the thematic analysis enabled the flexibility to explore transcripts for surprising data, whilst the generation of themes was informed by extant research. Data analysis revealed three main themes and six sub-themes as follows: reflective processes (evaluating peers’ experiences, collaboration through shared knowledge); social support (effort and advice, emotional support); and engagement (task engagement, pressure of assessment).

  • The present dataset is a collection of information about the biomechanical behavior and histological characterization of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) harvested during the autopsy procedure. The primary hypothesis of the present research is: Do cadaveric AAA walls, when previously stressed by inflation, conserve significant resistance against tearing comparable to no previously stressed aortas described in the literature? Eight AAAs (6 fusiform and two saccular) were carefully dissected and had their branches ligated with cotton or prolene sutures. Each specimen was submitted to intraluminal pressurization, up to the rupture of their wall. This pressurization was made through the inflation of an air balloon inside the specimens up to their rupture. From the border of the rupture sites, and from the proximal (control sample 1) and distal (control sample 2) no dilated portions of each vessel, samples were harvested for uniaxial tensile tests, and histological analysis. The uniaxial tensile test utilized the INSTRON SPEC 2200 device and was coordinated by INSPEC software and SERIES IX software. The essential variables collected through this test are failure stress, failure tension, and failure strain. Each sample test generated a chart representing the relationship between stress and strain. The histological analysis included hematoxylin-eosin, Picrocirius, and Voerhoeff stains. Unfortunately, some samples were lost, especially during histological processing. A quantitative analysis (collagen and elastic fibers) was made using the software Pannoramic Viewer and Case Viewer.1 Notable findings: Even after being stretched/stressed up to their rupture, the specimens conserved uniaxial biomechanical properties comparable to AAA and normal aorta samples previously described in the literature by Monteiro e Nynomiya respectively.2,3 DATA DESCRIPTION: a) Biomechanical Data: As explained above, four samples were collected for each specimen, two from each side of the rupture border and two control samples, one from a proximal and a second from a distal region of the vessel. It is important to highlight here that some samples did not produce valid biomechanical tests, so they do not have their results included here. For each valid sample test, three documents are generated: 1. Stress X strain chart 2. Table (excel file containing all the values related to the stress X strain chart 3. A report from the Biomechanical test software containing details of the test All charts contain a notification in their left upper corner about the failure stress, strain and tension of each sample. b) Histological Data: The percentage of coverage of collagen fibers and elastin fibers is expressed in table I in decimal numbers (for example, 0.36 = 36%). Similarly to the sampling for biomechanical tests, four samples were harvested from each aorta, when it was feasible. Ps.: All Case C samples were lost during processing

  • Methodology For the purpose of the present study, secondary data have been used. The secondary data have been collected from published reports of selected Indian public sector enterprises and records of Government of India. Statistical test has also been applied in appropriate context. Ratio analysis, mean, standard deviation, co-efficient of variation, and student ‘t’ test are used to analyze the data. Results and Discussion An attempt has been made to study the impact of disinvestment in Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd, Steel Authority of India Ltd., Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd. and Shipping Corporation Ltd. with the help of certain identified indicators such as operating performance based on sales, investment and employment and corporate liquidity, financial strength and asset usage. Research Methodology To achieve above mentioned objectives seven companies had selected out of which three are from Maharatna i.e., Coal India Limited, Oil And Natural Gas Corporation, Steel Authority Of India Limited and three from Navaratna i.e., National Aluminum Company, Rural Electrification Corporation, Engineers India. To study financial performance of selected companies following vital ratios had selected which will indicate overall financial performance of companies PBIT, Net Profit, Equity Ratio, Assets Ratio and Capital Employed Ratio. The period of the study is from 2007 to 2017 and 2012 is considered as base year. The data had been collected from various secondary sources like official websites, search engines, articles and etc. Paired T-test used for testing the statistical significance and this test is applied not only for ratio performance but also effect of disinvestment on the basis of pre and post disinvestment

  • The proposed dataset can be used to test the precision of scaling SfM reconstructed objects using camera positioning data. In addition position uncertainty data from a DJI GPS RTK in X,Y and Z is added, so the propagation of uncertainty from the positioning sensor to the calculated scale can be calculated. The camera positions are also given with any uncertainty, so other types of position uncertainty can be used to test how the system will react with different uncertainty inputs. Images from two objects are given - an angel statue and a wind turbine blade. Images are taken in a semi-circle pattern around the object and a total of 19 images are taken from each object. The positions of the images are given in a separate file, while all the images contain EXIF data with the used camera parameters. All images are captured using Canon 5Ds DSLR camera. More information on how the scale and scale uncertainty can be calculated are present in the referenced paper.
