Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Adaptive neural fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) combined with GAs is applied to develop an expert system for designing in situ toughened Si3N4 in this paper. ANFIS combines fuzzy linguistic descriptions with accurate experimental data. GAs have been successfully applied in searching and optimizing very large and varied data spaces. ANFIS models were developed in this paper to predict mechanical properties based on sintering processing or microstructure. And GAs models are developed to predict sintering processing based on mechanical properties or microstructure of this material. A software package was developed to realize the applications mentioned above easily and quickly.
