Keywords:incomplete penetration, prediction, tungsten inert gas welding, artificial neural network, mild steel
This paper seeks for forecasting partial penetration inside tungsten inert gas welding utilizing reaction surface technique plus artificial neural network. It handles the statistical approach of main composite design, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), surface plots as well as cooks distance and also the quasi newton neural network to examine along with forecast the reaction aim. The outcome extracted from the all model suggests that the design predicts the partial penetration adequately. Even so the artificial neural network is a greater predictive model with least mean square error. The statistical method for prediction used have discovered boosting applications in an assortment of areas of sciences and engineering, the techniques outlined in this paper for incomplete penetration prediction is able to eradicate the requirement for performing experiments on the groundwork of the conventional technique which happens to be time consuming and economically not justifiable.
