crack: Crack Quantification for Photovoltaic Backsheets

Description Usage Format Author(s) Source

Description

A dataset containing the average normalized crack depth for photovoltaic backsheets with inner layers of either ethylene-vinyl acetate or polyethylene exposed to 4,000 hours of continuous UVA irradiance with an intensity of 1.55 w/m2 at 340 nm and a chamber temperature of 70 deg C. Mechanistic variables from Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy are included to track chemical changes in the materials related to cracking. See the journal article titled 'A Non- Destructive Method for Crack Quantification in Photovoltaic Backsheets Under Accelerated and Real-World Exposures' in Polymer Degradation and Stability for more details.
