Prediction of Compressive Strength Using Support Vector Regression
MetadataShow full item record
At the design stage of a structure, the members of adequate dimension and strength is provided. But with passage of time, the strength of the members reduces gradually due to exposure to environmental conditions and unexpected loadings other than for which the structure is designed. Non Destructive Testing (NDT) method provides a convenient and rapid method of determination of existing strength of concrete without subjecting the member to any damage. In the present study, Support Vector Regression (SVR) in Python has been used for the prediction of compressive strength of concrete. Three different NDT techniques have been used as input for the SVR model. A good co-relation between predicted strength and strength determined after crushing the concrete cubes has been achieved. It has also been observed that accuracy in the predicted strength is more in case of inputs from more than one NDT technique is used.
