A computationally efficient surrogate model was developed based on artificial neural networks (ANN) to investigate the effect of the new generation of wide-base tires on pavement responses. Non-uniform tire contact stress measurements were obtained using a stress-in-motion instrument. The measured 3-D contact stresses were applied on two extreme 3-D… (More)
In this work we first propose a heteroscedastic generalization to RVM, a fast Bayesian framework for regression, based on some recent similar works. We use variational approximation and expectation propagation to tackle the problem. The work is still under progress and we are examining the results and comparing with the previous works.
