Determining panel lengths for slurry walls is an engineering issue that involves complex geotechnical, design, and site considerations. In practice, the decision is made through a trial-and-error process. Relevant principles extracted from experts are not sufficiently detailed to generate a solution. This research proposes an inductive learning model for solving this problem. Given a new project whose panel lengths need to be determined, the model chooses similar cases from existing cases,
