Neural Networks (NN) and Genetic Programming (GP) were used as a new method for formulation of grain size of electrodeposited Cu_{1-x}Zn_x alloys as a function of Zinc and Copper content both electrolyte and the alloy films produced by electrodeposition technique. To predict grain size a great number of different expression models genetic programming and neural network were conducted. Each model differs from the other with their linking function, number of genes, head size, and chromosomes. To generate databases for the new grain size formulations, testing and training sets in total of 134 samples were selected at different Zn and Cu ratios of components. 6 different input parameters were selected and the output parameter was grain size of the electrodeposited Cu-Zn alloys. The testing and training sets consisted of randomly selected 106 and 28 for the proposed models. All results in the models indicated an applicable performance for predicting grain size of the alloys and found reliable. The predicted model showed that all of the input parameters effected on the resulting grain size. The NN and GEP based formulation results are compared with experimental results and found to be quite reliable with a very high correlation (R2 = 0.995 for GEP and 0.999 for NN).
