  abstract =     "The main purpose of this paper is to propose an
                 incorporating a grammatical evolution (GE) into the
                 genetic algorithm (GA), called GEGA, and apply it to
                 estimate the compressive strength of high-performance
                 concrete (HPC). The GE, an evolutionary programming
                 type system, automatically discovers complex
                 relationships between significant factors and the
                 strength of HPC in a more transparent way to enhance
                 our understanding of the mechanisms. A GA was used
                 afterward with GE to optimize the appropriate function
                 type and associated coefficients using over 1,000
                 examples for which experimental data were available.
                 The results show that this novel model, GEGA, can
                 obtain a highly nonlinear mathematical equation which
                 outperforms than the traditional multiple regression
                 analysis (RA) with lower estimating errors for
                 predicting the compressive strength of HPC.",
