  abstract =     "Gene Expression Programming (GEP) is used in modelling
                 the deflection basins measured on the surface of the
                 flexible pavements. Back calculation of the pavement
                 layer moduli are well-accepted procedures for the
                 evaluation of the structural capacity of pavements. The
                 ultimate aim of the backcalculation process from
                 Nondestructive Testing (NDT) results is to estimate the
                 pavement material properties. Using back calculation
                 analysis, in situ material properties can be back
                 calculated from the measured field data through
                 appropriate analysis techniques. In order to back
                 calculate reliable moduli, deflection basin must be
                 realistically modelled. In this study, GEP was used to
                 model the deflection basin characteristics.
                 Experimental deflection data groups from NDT are used
                 to show the capability of the GEP approach in modelling
                 the deflection bowl. This approach can be easily and
                 realistically performed to solve the problems which do
                 not have a formulation or function about the
