Original Article


In the study, intelligent computing technique is developed for solving the nonlinear system for wire coating analysis with the bath of Oldroyd 8-constant fluid having pressure gradient using feedforward artificial neural networks (ANNs), evolutionary computing, active-set algorithm (ASA) and their hybrid. Original partial differential equations of wire coating process are converted to nonlinear ordinary differential equation (NL-ODEs) in dimensionless form using similarity transformation. Strength of ANNs is exploited to develop mathematical model of the transformed equations by defining an unsupervised error. Training of design variables of the network is carried out globally using evolutionary computing techniques based on genetic algorithms (GAs) hybrid with ASA for rapid local convergence. Design scheme is applied to analyze the dynamics of the problem for number of variants based on dilatant constant, the pseudoplastic constant, the pressure gradient, shear stress under the effect of viscosity parameter and varying the coating thickness of the polymer. Results of the proposed method are compared with standard numerical solver for NL-ODEs based of Adams method to establish its correctness. Reliability of the method is further validated through the results of statistics based on different performance measures for accuracy and computational complexity.
