In this paper, the effect of different alloying elements on the ultimate tensile strength of Al-Mg2Si composites is theoretically studied. The feed forward back propagation neural network with sigmoid function is used. The extensive experimental results taken from literature are modeled and mathematical formula is presented in explicit form. In addition, it is observed that magnesium and copper have a stronger effect on the ultimate tensile strength of Al-Mg2Si composites comparison to other alloying elements. The proposed model shows good agreement with test results and can be used to find the ultimate tensile strength of Al-Mg2Si composites.
