ABSTRACT

The aim of this paper is to investigate the potential of feedforward Artificial Neural Networks for the cost

optimum design of concrete structures.The paper presents and discusses the application of three Aritificial

Neural Network models for the cost optimum design of a singly reinforced simply supported RCC beam .

Backpropagation network is chosen for the proposed network using the Neural Network Toolbox of MATLAB.The

training and test data have been generated by the solution of the non linear constrained optimization problem

using the Solver Add In of Microsoft Excel. The results obtained from the neural nets are compared with those

INTRODUCTION

Optimal design of framed structures is always a goal of engineers. Most building designs are optimized by trial

and error combined with the experience of the designer. The trial-and-error process is continued until an

acceptable design is attained. The efficiency of the trial and error procedure is greatly dependent on the

experience and ability of the designer to select a good initial design and perturb the design in a better

direction towards an optimal design. As a result, techniques of optimization have been developed to automate

and mathematically orchestrate the trial and error procedure. In general, optimum design problems seek to

minimize a function (usually cost) using a set of design variables subjected to constraints. These optimization

techniques are usually lengthy and complicated to implement, hence putting more burden on the designer.

One of the techniques to reduce the computational efforts required in the aforementioned regard is to train a

suitable neural network with a number of optimum designs and simulate the same later on for achieving the

results. The neural network in this case comes up with a design based on its training rather than conducting a full

The objective function is the cost per unit length of the beam and is given by the following relationship: -

Total Cost = Cc ( Ag Ast ) x 10-6 + Cs Ast x 7850 x 10-6 + Cf (b + 2D) x 10-3 (1)

The primary constraints for the optimization problem are based on the provisions furnished in IS 456:2000

which take into account the flexural strength of the member and the lower & upper limits of steel.

A side constraint can also be incorporated on the basis of the limiting value of the depth of the beam.

D-Dmax<= 0 (6)

The notations used in the above expressions have the following descriptions:-

The

Cc = Cost of concrete per unit volume (Rs/m3)

optimization problem is to determine d and Ast to minimize equation (1) subject to the constraints equations (2)

(6). The parameters Cc , Cs and Cf in equation (1) are considered as constants with values of 2500 (Rs/m 3 ), 35

(Rs/kg) and 140 (Rs/m2 ) respectively. The value of effective cover (d') is also taken as a constant equal to 20mm.

The problem is solved for different values of f y, fck, M, b and Dmax to build a database using which the neural

Network topologies with one and two hidden layers were considered for the present study. The number of nodes

in each of the hidden layers was varied (between 8 to 25 in the first hidden layer and between 4 to 10 in the

second hidden layer) as shown in Fig.2 and the resulting models were tested for convergence. The impact of the

The other network parameters were kept constant and are stated below:-

The inputs to the network are:

For the formation of the training data set, two values of fck were used i.e 20 N/ mm2 and 25 N/ mm2, two values of

fy were used i.e. 250 N/ mm2 and 415 N/ mm2 , the magnitude of design moment was varied between 5 kNm to

100 kNm, values of 200mm, 230mm, 250mm and 300mm were adopted as the width of the beam and three

values 300mm, 350mm and 400mm of permissible maximum depth of the beam were used.

In the following sections the performance of four different network models: 5-20-3, 5-10-5-3, 5-25-3 and 5-8-6-3

have been analyzed. The decrease in mse for the proposed models during training have been represented in

CONCLUSIONS

The paper considered the optimization problem of minimizing the total cost of a rectangular RCC beam section.

The theoretical results obtained for different material combinations, limiting depths, section widths and design

moments were used to train different neural network models. The impact of the size of the training data sets on

the convergence to the desired goal during training of the models was also studied. The network models with

one/two hidden layer(s) and with different number of nodes in the hidden layer(s) as shown in Fig.2 were not

found to converge when the training data set consisted of 100,150 ,200 and 250 samples. However convergence

was achieved with the training data set consisting of 500 samples.

Four different models were then considered and were tested with five different problems. The deviations in the

outputs generated by the artificial neural network models relative to the theoretical results were found to be

within tolerable limits as indicated by Figs. 7 and 8. Improvement in results can be further increased by

increasing the size of the training data set or by further adjusting the network topology.

An artificial neural net with a suitable topology and weight adjusting algorithm can be considered to be a reliable

means for the solution of engineering problems involving function approximation. The main advantage lies in

the flexibility offered by the network and the savings made in the computational efforts, since the problem in
