Friction, friction coefficient, genetic algorithm, artificial neural networks.


In this work was presented the method of determination of the friction coefficient by using multilayer artificial neural networks on the basis of experimental database
obtained from the strip drawing test. Using genetic algorithm the optimization of number of input variables of artificial neural networks has been done. As an input parameters for training artificial neural networks following parameters has been used: surface parameters of the sheet and dies, sheet material parameters and clamping force. Some results have pointed out that genetic algorithm has been successfully appled to optimization of training set.
