Abstract:   (1043 Views)
The artificial neural network is such a model of biological neural networks containing some of their characteristics and being a member of intelligent dynamic systems. The purpose of applying ANN in civil engineering is their efficiency in some problems that do not have a specific solution or their solution would be very time-consuming. In this study, four different neural networks including FeedForward BackPropagation (FFBP), Radial Basis Function (RBF), Extended Radial Basis Function (ERBF), and Generalized Regression Neural Network (GRNN) have been efficiently trained to analyze large-scale space structures specifically double-layer barrel vaults focusing on their maximum element stresses. To investigate the efficiency of the neural networks, an example has been done and their corresponding results have been compared with their exact amounts obtained by the numerical solution.
