In this study, unconfined compressive strength values of sand soil injected with microfine cement were predicted using fuzzy logic method. Mamdani and Sugeno methods were applied in the fuzzy logic models. In addition, a regression analysis was carried out in order to compare these two methods. In the models, water/cement ratio and injection pressure were the input variables, and unconfined compressive strength was the output variable. The dataset includes 427 samples, which were experimentally injected with microfine cement. Predictions for unconfined compressive strength were obtained by creating membership functions and rule base for each input (predictive) parameter in fuzzy logic models. The coefficient of determination (R2) and Mean Square Error (MSE) were used as criteria for evaluating the performance of the developed models. The results suggested that the three applied models (i.e. Mamdani, Sugeno and regression) provided statistically significant results, and these methods could be used in the future prediction-based studies. The results showed that Sugeno model provided the best performance for predicting unconfined compressive strength. It was followed by Mamdani and Regression models, respectively. This study has suggested that the fuzzy logic method can be an alternative to the regression method which traditionally has been used in prediction process.
