ABSTRACT A neural network model was used to treat thermal conductivity data obtained from Middle Valley. This technique was able to separate the effects of different parameters such as porosity, grain density, bulk density and water content on the thermal conductivity. Predicted curves showed good agreement with the experimental results.
