Abstract: This paper is concerned with a design method for modeling Incremental Granular Model (IGM) based on Linguistic Model (LM) and Polynomial Regression (PR) from data set obtained by complex yacht hydrodynamics. For this purpose, we develop a systematic approach to generating automatic fuzzy rules based on Context-based Fuzzy C-Means (CFCM) clustering. This clustering algorithm builds information granules in the form of linguistic contexts and estimates the cluster centers by preserving the homogeneity of the clustered data points associated with the input and output space. Furthermore, IGM deals with localized nonlinearities of the complex system so that the modeling discrepancy can be compensated. After performing the design of 2nd order PR as the first global model, we refined it through a series of local fuzzy if-then rules in order to capture the remaining localized characteristics. The experimental results revealed that the presented IGM showed a better performance in comparison to the previous works for predicting the hydrodynamic performance of sailing yachts.
