Dataset for "Effect of fibre loading on the microstructural, electrical, and mechanical properties of carbon fibre incorporated smart cement-based composites"

The data "Dataset_Frontiers" is pertinent to the study in the paper "Effect of carbon fibre loading on the microstructural, electrical, and mechanical properties of cement-based sensors" published under the research topic "Smart Concrete to Deliver Sustainable Infrastructures" in the Journal: Frontiers in materials

The purpose of collecting the data was to understand the transitional behaviours of microstructural, electrical, and mechanical properties of cement-based sensors, which occur while increasing the amount of the carbon fibre from lower to higher dosages. This will facilitate the understanding on the improvement of self-sensing performance of cement-based sensors by improving the manufacturing process and mixing design, and the use of multi-functional in-situ self-sensing.

The data contains information of the electrical and mechanical properties of cement-based sensors containing carbon fibres from zero to 2.4% by volume (vol.%).

Two excel spread sheets are included in the zip file.

In the "Electrical properties.xlsx":
the column of "Sensor (S/m)" contains data for the bulk conductivity of cement-based sensors,
the column of "Solution mixture (S/m)" contains data for the bulk conductivity of diluted calcium hydroxide (CH) solution incorporating carbon fibres.

In the "Mechanical properties.xlsx":
the column of "Rf (MPa) " contains data for the flexural strength of cement-based sensors,
the column of "Rc (MPa) " contains data for the compressive strength of cement-based sensors.

Documentation

Data collection method:

The bulk conductivity was obtained via the impedance measurement under the voltage of 707.107 mV, and the frequency range was 1 Hz – 10 MHz. The compressive and flexural strengths were obtained via uniaxial compression and three-point bending.

Technical details and requirements:

The impedance response was collected with a Newtons4th PSM 3750 frequency analyser (Newtons4th Ltd., Leicester, UK) interfaced with an impedance analyser. The Impedance analysis software was Zview (Scribner Associates Inc, North Carolina, USA). The compression and three-point bending machines were from CONTROLS Ltd, Hertfordshire, UK, as well as Instron, Buckinghamshire, UK, respectively.
