Simulation and Prediction for Groundwater Dynamics Based on RBF Neural Network


Based on MATLAB, a new model-BRF network model is founded to be used in groundwater dynamic simulation and prediction. It is systematically studied about the training sample set, testing sample set, the pretreatment of the original data, neural network construction, training, testing and evaluating the entire process. A favorable result is achieved by applying the model to simulate and predict groundwater dynamics, which shows this new method is precise and scientific.
