Abstract

In this study, the drying rate of poplar, pine, and oak timbers is estimated using an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). Experimental data were used for training and testing networks. The R-2 value obtained when unknown data were applied to the networks was 0.99982 for the drying rate of poplar timbers, 0.999028 for the drying rate of pine timbers, and 0.999968 for the drying rate of oak timbers, which is very satisfactory. The method proposed offers more flexibility and therefore drying analysis of different timber kinds is fairly simplified.
