|Abstract:||This research study was conducted to predict the unconfined compressive strength (UCS) of the rocks by applying the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), and the outcomes were compared with the traditional statistical model of multiple regression (MR) analysis and artificial neural network (ANN). 13 types of rock samples collected from 5 geological horizons in India were tested in the laboratory as per the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) standards. In developing the predictive models, ultrasonic P-wave velocity, density and slake durability index were considered as model inputs, whereas UCS was the output parameter. The prediction performance of ANFIS model was checked against the MR and the ANN predictive models. It was found that the constructed ANFIS model exhibited relatively high prediction performance of UCS than the MR and the ANN models. The performance capacity of the predictive models were evaluated based on the coefficient of determination (R-2), the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE), the root mean square error (RMSE) and the variance account for (VAF). The ANFIS predictive model had R2, MAPE, RMSE and VAF equal to 0.978, 10.15%, 6.29 and 97.66%, respectively, superseding the performance of the MR and the ANN models. The performance comparison revealed that soft computing is a good approach for minimizing the uncertainties and inconsistency of correlations in geotechnical engineering. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
