A Radial Basis Function Neural Network Approach for Compressive Strength Prediction of Stabilized Soil

This study considers the use of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to predict the unconfined compressive strength (UCS) of soil-stabilizer mix. Radial basis function (RBF) as one of the most widely used ANN architectures is utilized to construct comprehensive models to relate the UCS of stabilized soil to the properties of natural soil and type and quantity of stabilizing additives. A comprehensive set of data obtained from previously published stabilization test results was used for model development. A subsequent parametric study was carried out and the trends of the results have been confirmed via previous laboratory studies. The RBF based estimates are compared with the experimental and numerical results of other researchers and found to be more accurate.
