Modeling of Microhardness Profile in Nitriding Processes Using Artificial Neural Network
A artificial neural network was assigned to modeling of hardness profiles in the nitrided layer. In the model developed, a feed-forward neural network was applied. The designed network possesses good capacities to generalize knowledge included in experiential data. Matching the model with the training data made it possible to determine, with a good approximation, hardness profiles, which make up a set of verifying data.
