Acoustic Data

Acoustics files
p2394_exp10acfiles.tar (71 Gb) 4962 files

These .tdms files contain the raw continuous time series data. Acoustic data are recorded continuously at 40 kHz from an Accelerometer.
The ReadTDMS.txt file contains a few lines of code that will enable you to load/plot the acoustic data in Python.
For this experiment, large acoustic impulses were sent throughout the experiment from a large pizeoceramic disk (see Johson et al. 2008). The impulses can be found under the Acc variable in the mechanical data file. Similarly, these pulses are recorded on the accelerometer and can be seen when plotting the acoustic data.
