Mechanical properties of transformation induced plasticity (TRIP)-aided multiphase steels are modeled by neural networks using two methods of reducing the network connectivity, viz. a pruning algorithm and a predator prey algorithm, to gain understanding on the impact of steel composition and treatment. The pruning algorithm gradually reduces the complexity of the lower layer of connections, removing less significant connections. In the predator prey algorithm, a genetic algorithm based multi-objective optimization technique evolves neural networks on a Pareto front, simultaneously minimizing training error and network size. The results show that the techniques find parsimonious models and, furthermore, extract useful knowledge from the data.
