Hybrid Neural Network Model for Compressive Strength of Reinforced Concrete

(M.Tech) Structural Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering
Assistante Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering Priyadharshini Institute of Tech & Science

This paper focuses on the procedure of statistical assessment of test results in reference to the strength development of self compacting concrete and normally compacting concrete. A self compacting concrete and a normally compacting concrete (NCC) with similar ultimate compressive strength were developed. The concrete cubes were tested at 7, 28, 60, 90, 120 and 150 days after normal water curing. For each case 10 samples were tested and the test results were recorded for each sample on as obtained basis. To predict strength characteristics four input parameters namely water cement ratio, aggregate cement ratio, percentage of fibers and aspect ratio were identified. The results of the present investigation indicate that Genetic Algorithm based Artificial Neural Network (GANN) has strong potential as a feasible tool for predicting strength characteristics of steel fibre reinforced concrete.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
