acrylic: A data frame of an acrylic polymer degradation experiment

acrylicR Documentation

A data frame of an acrylic polymer degradation experiment

Description

This data set is from a study of photodegradation of acrylic polymer. In this work, polymeric samples were exposed to different levels of light exposures and resulting optical changes were determined through optical spectroscopy. *IrradTot* (total applied irradiance) is the main exogenous variable and *YI* (yellowness index) is the endogenous variable (response). The other columns in the data set (*IAD1*, *IAD2*, *IAD2p*, and *IAD3*) are induced absorbance to dose values extracted from optical absorbance spectra as single metrics and used as intermediate unit level endogenous (response) variables in the netSEM analysis.
