- abstract = "This study aims to develop several novel machine learning (ML) evolutionary algorithms for the prediction of small strain shear modulus (Gmax) of clean sands and sand-fines binary mixtures. To this end, five key features of isotropic confining pressure (p), void ratio (e), uniformity coefficient (Cu), particle shape descriptor (rho), and non-plastic fines content (FC) are adopted as the inputs to artificial neural network (ANN) models as well as genetic programming (GP) algorithm so as to render the maximum shear modulus of granular soils as the output. Accordingly, a comprehensive dataset containing 1055 Gmax data points is exploited to develop ML simulations. The validity of ML-based models in estimating the Gmax of clean sands and sand-silt mixtures is rigorously examined through various statistical indices and measurement criteria. The results show that a novel ML model using ANN-Levenberg Marquardt (LM) in conjunction with an evolutionary optimization method named Success History-based Adaptive Differential Evolution with Linear population size reduction (LSHADE) is capable of predicting Gmax data with a very high precision rendering R2 values of 0.9833, 0.9841, 0.9802, and 0.9835 for the whole, training, validation, and test datasets, respectively. Meanwhile, using the well-established GP algorithm, a new practical model is proposed to predict the Gmax of clean sands and sand-fines mixtures containing non-cohesive silt inclusion with R2 values of 0.9323, 0.9351, and 0.9312 for the whole, training, and test datasets, respectively. Finally, the proposed models of ANN-LSHADE-LM and GP are shown to be appreciably superior, in terms of accuracy, to all commonly used empirical correlations in the literature for Gmax estimation",
