    Dam behavior is difficult to predict due to its complexity. At the same time, dam deformation behavior is vital to dam systems. Developing a precise prediction model of dam deformation from prototype data is still challenging but determinant in the structural safety assessment. In this paper, an artificial neural network, trained by the improved artificial fish swarm algorithm and backpropagation algorithm, is proposed for predicting the dam deformation. Initially, crossover operator is embedded…Read more
