The Artificial Neural Network and Regression Analysis Approach to Prediction of the Fiber Diameter of Spunbonding Fabrics
In this work, the artificial neural network model and statistical regression model are established and utilized for predicting the fiber diameter of spunbonding nonwovens from the process parameters. The artificial neural network model has good approximation capability and fast convergence rate, which is used in this research. The results show the artificial neural network model can provide quantitative predictions of fiber diameter and yield more accurate and stable predictions than the statistical regression model, which reveals that the artificial neural network model is based on the inherent principles, and it can yield reasonably good prediction results and provide insight into the relationship between process parameters and fiber diameter.
