  abstract =     "In this study, lamination as extrinsic mechanism was
                 considered to enhance damage tolerance of three-layer
                 Al6061-5percentvol. SiCp/Al1050/Al6061-5percentvol.
                 SiCp composites. To fabricate laminates of dissimilar
                 interfacial adhesion, different rolling strains were
                 applied during hot roll-bonding. The discrepancy in
                 interfacial strength of laminates was examined by shear
                 test while toughness values were studied using
                 three-point bending test. It was revealed that both
                 interfacial adhesion and damage tolerance were
                 influenced by rolling strain. Interfacial bonding
                 played the major role in the energy absorption during
                 fracture which was quantified as initiation,
                 propagation and total toughness. The results declared
                 that improving the interfacial adhesion elevated the
                 energy consumed for emergence and growth of debonded
                 area. Five different models based on genetic
                 programming have been proposed in order to predict the
                 toughness of composites. Also, corresponding
                 mathematical correlations of introduced models were
                 exhibited. To construct the models, experimental data
                 were randomly divided and used as training and testing
                 sets. The data used as inputs were comprised of five
                 independent parameters such as {"}SiCp volume
                 content{"}, {"}average SiCp volume in bulk
                 laminates{"}, {"}specimen thickness{"}, {"}rolling
                 strain{"} and experimented {"}shear strength{"}. The
                 training and testing results were in good agreement and
                 revealed strong capability for predicting the toughness
                 of laminates.",
