In this paper, an attempt has been made in this study to grow the concept of modularity along with pruned networks for strength-ductility balance of high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel plates using lower and upperlayer pruning algorithms. Modelling of strength-ductility balance in case of high strength low alloy steel is a major concern in industrial research. In most cases, the cause of inferior mechanical properties of such steel products could not be clearly identified. The comparative analysis with standard fully-connected network and pruned network reveals an improved performance for pruned-modular architecture and explains the metallurgical phenomenon of HSLA steel in a better way.
