Abstract

An artificial neural networks (ANN) model with back-propagation learning algorithm were employed to transfer the knowledge encapsulated in the design of 22 overhead prestressed concrete (PC) bridges. The model was developed to estimate the concrete volume and prestressing weight in the superstructure of bridge navigable spans. The results indicated the great potential of ANN to be decision support tools for preliminary quantity estimates.
