Paper Title:
Application of ANN Back-Propagation for Fracture Design Parameters in Extra-Low Cycle Rotating Bending Fatigue
  Abstract

The fracture problems of ecomaterial (aluminum alloyed cast iron) under extra-low cycle rotating bending fatigue loading were studied using artificial neural networks (ANN) in this paper. The training data were used in the formation of training set of ANN. The ANN model exhibited excellent in results comparison with the experimental results. It was concluded that predicted fracture design parameters by the trained neural network model seem more reasonable compared to approximate methods. It is possible to claim that, ANN is fairly promising prediction technique if properly used. Training ANN model was introduced at first. And then the Training data for the development of the neural network model was obtained from the experiments. The input parameters, notch depth, the presetting deflection and tip radius of the notch, and the output parameters, the cycle times of fracture were used during the network training. The neural network architecture is designed. The ANN model was developed using back propagation architecture with three layers jump connections, where every layer was connected or linked to every previous layer. The number of hidden neurons was determined according to special formula. The performance of system is summarized at last. In order to facilitate the comparisons of predicted values, the error evaluation and mean relative error are obtained. The result show that the training model has good performance, and the experimental data and predicted data from ANN are in good coherence.
