dc.description.abstract The quality of joint achievable through ultrasonic welding is highly dependent on the process input parameters. In this study an artificial neural network (ANN) is combined with a genetic algorithm (GA) to develop a high-fidelity model for predicting the strength of ultrasonically welded joints. Initial weights of the ANN were optimized using the GA. The model was then trained by the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm on 27 training experiments and validated on 10 experiments. The model demonstrated a high level of accuracy with a mean relative error of 6.79% on validation data and a correlation coefficient of 0.9827 for all 37 experiments. en_US
