                 artificial neural network (ANN) for the prediction of
                 the flow number of dense asphalt-aggregate mixtures.
                 Percentages of coarse aggregate, filler, bitumen, air
                 voids, voids in mineral aggregate, and Marshall
                 Quotient were employed as the predictor variables. A
                 comprehensive experimental database was used for the
                 development of the model. The statistical measures of
                 coefficient of determination, coefficient of
                 efficiency, root mean squared error, and mean absolute
                 error were used to evaluate the performance of the
                 model. Sensitivity and parametric analyses were
                 conducted and discussed. The ANN model accurately
                 characterises the flow number of asphalt mixtures
                 resulting in a very good prediction performance. The
                 proposed model remarkably outperforms several existing
                 prediction models for the flow number of asphalt

                 by the gene expression programming (GEP), multi
                 expression programming (MEP) (29), and hybrid GP and
                 simulated annealing (GP/SA) models.'
