Load-deflection curve is the most important part of the structural analysis of RC beam and slab. The load-deflection analysis of the RC one-way slab strengthened by CFRP using experimental work, finite element analysis (FEA), artificial neural network (ANN), and a comparison of them together are the important objective of this study. The dimension of the one-way slab was 1800�400�120 mm which was strengthened by different length and width of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). The experimental results sufficiently adapted with FEA and ANNs output. The feed forward back-propagation (FFB) was the best ANN for prediction of load-deflection curve with minimum error below 1, and maximum correlation coefficient close to 1.
