DCN-37:  Metal pad instability in liquid metal batteries. animations of computed flow regimes, a mechanical engineering simulation dataset, was submitted by Rachel Woodbrook and curated for the DCN by Susan Borda.

Rachel (University of Michigan) submitted this dataset to the DCN looking for the best curator fit based on technical and disciplinary expertise. Upon review it was determined that Susan (also at the University of Michigan) had the best expertise fit and was able to accept the curation assignment.

The dataset was in good shape, and only required minimal curation actions. Susan’s only recommendation to the data author was to update the documentation to better explain the significance of some of the files in the dataset.

The data author accepted Susan’s recommendation, and the dataset was published to the University of Michigan’s Deep Blue Data repository.

The purpose of this Dataset Digest series of blog posts is to keep our followers informed and up to date on the curation activities of the DCN! These weekly updates will summarize datasets that have been curated by the network. Once a dataset is “finalized” (curation is complete, any necessary updates or changes have been made, and the dataset has been made publicly available via the local partner repository) we add it to our website and include it in our weekly digest. Thank you for following our progress!
