Several theoretical and experimental studies have shown that the characterization of a target (tube,...) can be made from the cut-off frequencies of the anti-symmetric circumferential waves A 1 propagating around the tube of various radius ratio b/a (a: outer radius and b: inner radius). This work investigates the abilities of Adaptive Neuro-fuzzy Inference System ANFIS and Artificial Neural Networks ANN to predict the thickness of a tube immersed in water for various cut-frequency of

The ANN model was trained using Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) algorithm, and the ANFIS model was trained using hybrid algorithm learning that is a combination of Last Square Estimate and the gradient descent back-propagation algorithm. Several configurations are evaluated during the development of these networks. The Mean Absolute Error (MAE), Mean Relative Error (MRE), Standard Error (SE), Root Mans Square Error (RMSE) and Correlation Coefficient (R) were the statistical performance indices that were used to evaluate the accuracy of the various models. Based on the comparison between ANN and ANFIS, it was found, that the ANFIS model can be applied successfully in the in the modeling of the thickness of a Submerged Tube.
