What is it about?

Three new different models were generated to predict the bond strength in elevated temperatures. these new models have a better performance than the one presented in the literature.

Why is it important?

To conclude, this work has presented a coherent methodology to implement a well-established soft computing approach using an AI algorithm to develop three correlations that can be easily used in practice. Further refinement of the correlations can be undertaken in the future. Such refinements should include the introduction of more experimental data; currently, the availability of experimental data for concrete in high temperatures is limited, particularly in the case of fibre-RC.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations.
