The fourth dataset dedicated to the Open Guided Waves platform presented in this work aims at a carbon fiber composite plate with an additional omega stringer at constant temperature conditions. The dataset provides full ultrasonic guided wavefields. 

A chirp signal in the frequency range 20-500 kHz and Hann windowed tone-burst signal with 5 cycles and carrier frequencies of 16.5 kHz, 50 kHz, 100 kHz, 200 kHz and 300kHz are used to excite the wave. The piezoceramic actuator used for this purpose is attached to the center of the stringer side surface of the core plate.

Three scenarios are provided with this setup: (1) wavefield measurements without damage, (2) wavefield measurements with a local stringer debond and (3) wavefield measurements with a large stringer debond. The defects were caused by impacts performed from the backside of the plate. As result, the stringer feet debonds locally which was verified with conventional ultrasound measurements.

The dataset can be used for benchmarking purposes of various signal processing methods for damage imaging.

The detailed description of the dataset is published in Data in Brief Journal [3].
