Strength prediction of engineered cementitious composites with artificial neural networks
Department of Civil Engineering, Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey
Engineered Cementitious composites (ECC) became widely popular in the last decade due to their superior mechanical and durability properties. Strength prediction of ECC remains an important subject since the variation of strength with age is more emphasized in these composites. In this study, mix design components and corresponding strengths of various ECC designs are obtained from the literature and ANN models were developed to predict compressive and flexural strength of ECCs. Error margins of both models were on the lower side of the reported error values in the available literature while using data with the highest variability and noise. As a result, both models claim considerable applicability in all ECC mixture types.
