Determination of collapse potential of collapsible grounds is an important problem for civil engineers. However, this requires extensive field and laboratory works. For this reason. prediction tools for this purpose are highly attractive for engineers. Considering this difficulty, development of a Mamdani fuzzy inference system for prediction of collapse index is the main purpose of the Study. The fuzzy inference system developed in the study includes two inputs. one Output and 25 lingusitic if-then rules. The performace of the fuzzy inference system is checked by various indices and these indices reveal that the fuzzy inference system has a significant prediction performance.
