Prediction of the Tension Softening Curve of Dam Concrete Based on BP Neural Network
This paper predicted the tension softening curves of dam concrete by employing the BP neural networks based on the experimental data of direct tension tests of dam concrete. This approach can predict the tension softening curves for the same component material but different mixtures dam concrete without performing the direct tension tests which are complex and expensive.
