Analysis of some problems of experimental mechanics and biomechanics by means the ANFIS neuro-fuzzy system

Zenon Waszczyszyn, Marek Słoński
The Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) has been applied to the analysis of three problems: prediction of fundamental periods of vibrations of 5-storey prefabricated buildings, estimation of proximal femur strength, estimation of fracture toughness of dense concret. The results obtained by means of ANFIS are compared with those empirical formulae and forward neural networks. The ANFIS results have been proven to be superior.
