Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

    Abstract: In recent years, Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) are developed as one of the functional materials with enhanced properties and wide range of applications Aluminium metal matrix composites are the type of MMCs where aluminium is taken as the base metal alloy The hybrid metal composite is fabricated by welding AA2024 and AA5083 alloys To predict the tensile behaviour of AA2024 and AA5083 alloys, a new approach has been proposed by integrating the artificial neural network with mayfly optimization algorithm To analyse the predicting efficiency of the proposed approach, it is compared with artificial neural networks and experimental test values The results from the analysis indicated that the proposed approach has enhanced predicting accuracy than artificial neural

  • Corrosion estimation of Cu and Br based automotive parts exposed to biodiesel environment : Case of RSM and ANN   Order a copy of this article
    by David Samuel, A. Taheri-Garavand, Marcus A. Amuche, Christopher C. Enweremadu 
    Abstract: It is critical to analyze the effects of operational variables on corrosion when selecting materials for the biodiesel and automotive industries. This was the first study to present an optimization strategy for minimizing corrosion rates (CRs) of automotive parts (APs) specifically copper and brass in a biodiesel environment, employing novel response surface methodology (RSM) and 5-fold cross-validation of an Artificial Neural Network (ANN). To model CRs, the RSM and ANN were used. The mechanical properties of APs were investigated, specifically their hardness number and tensile strength, as well as their surface morphologies. The optimum CRs for copper and brass were 0.01656 mpy and 0.008189 mpy at a B 3.91 biodiesel/diesel blend and 240.9-hour exposure. The established ANN model configuration (2-13-2) proved superior adaptability and nonlinearity. The ANN model had a higher coefficient of determination and lower values of root mean squared errors (RMSE), mean average error (MAE), and average absolute deviation (AAD) when compared to the RSM model; this validates the ANN model's superiority for predicting CRs of copper and brass.
