This data in brief article describes a dataset used for an X-ray computer tomography aided engineering process consisting of X-ray computer tomography data and finite element models of non-crimp fabric glass fibre reinforced composites. Additional scanning electron microscope images are provided for the validation of the fibre volume fraction. The specimens consist of 4 layers of unidirectional bundles each supported by off-axis backing bundles with an average orientation on ±80°. The finite element models, which were created solely on the image data, simulate the tensile stiffness of the samples. The data can be used as a benchmark dataset to apply different segmentation algorithms on the X-ray computer tomography data. It can be further used to run the models using different finite element solvers.
