Short summary
Modeling can be used to overcome water jar test limitations. In this research study, MLP-type ANNs with one hidden layer have been used for modeling jar tests to determine the dosage level of coagulant used in water treatment processes. The data contained in this research have been obtained from the drinking water treatment plant located in the Ardabil province in Iran. To evaluate the performance of the model, the mean square error and the correlation coefficient parameters have been used.
