    Magnetic flux leakage testing (MFLT) is an important nondestructive testing method for the detection and evaluation of defects in magnetic materials. Magnetic field distribution in an MFLT system is usually simulated by the finite element method (FEM), which required large memory, high computation, and complication of the meshing process. In this paper, an alternative simulation method will be proposed using a deep neural network (DNN). The DNN method provides an easy way of simulation by feeding only the distribution of supplied current and the physical properties such as magnetic permeability without the need for the meshing process. Defects with arbitrary sizes were simulated under different configurations of the MFLT systems. The DNN was trained on the simulation results of the ...

    This paper reports the results of soft computing-based models correlating L and N-type Schmidt hammer rebound numbers of rock. A data-independent database was compiled from available measurements reported in the literature, which was used to train and develop back propagating neural networks, genetic programming and least square method models for the prediction of L-type Schmidt hammer rebound numbers. The results show that the highest predictive accuracy was obtained for the neural network model, which predicts the L type Schmidt hammer rebound number, with less than ±20% deviation from the experimental data for 97.27% of the samples. The optimum neural network is presented as a closed form equation and is also incorporated into an Excel-based graphical user interface, which direct...

    This work aims to develop a novel and practical equation for predicting the axial load of rectangular concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) columns based on soft computing techniques. More precisely, a dataset containing 880 experimental tests was first collected from the available literature for the development of an artificial neural network (ANN) model. An optimization strategy was conducted to obtain a final set of ANN’s architecture as well as its weight and bias parameters. The performance of the developed ANN was then compared to current codes (AS, EN, AIJ, ACI, AISC, LRFD, and DBJ) and existing empirical equations. The accuracy of the present model was found superior to the results obtained by others when predicting the axial load of rectangular CFST columns. For practical ap...

    Network Function Virtualization (NFV) can support customized on- demand network services with flexibility and cost-efficiency. Virtual Network Function (VNF) instances need to be scaled out, scaled in, and reallocated across the NFV infrastructure (NFVI) to avoid a violation of service agreements when the demand traffic changes. However, selecting the new placement of VNFs for migrating a service function chain (SFC) is an issue of efficient NFV control. We propose two novel integer linear programming (ILP) models and two approximation algorithms for SFC placement and migration to maximize the cost-efficiency of an NFV network regarding the changes of service demands and dynamic routing. The ILP models allow us to obtain the optimal solutions of SFC placement and migration with expl...
