Even though the benefits of PSO extend to other cases from a specific case (healthy 53-yearold human corneas modeled with Ogden constitutive law and loaded to 45 mm Hg), it may be noted that PSO is more stable than HEEDS. On the other hand, HEEDS software provided a graphical user-friendly interface easy to use and did not need any programming knowledge, or rather, assets benefitted HEEDS.
However, HEEDS runs simulations in parallel with several different optimization algorithms.
PSO has also the advantage that it converged first, considering the same number of iterations as HEEDS. Further, PSO is an open source code whereas HEEDS is a commercial software.

Current study assessed a simple inversemodeling implementation of PSO in the application of Biomechanics and compared to the commercial software HEEDS. Commercial software HEEDS has a strong record for the optimization of solutions in mechanics problems by employing a hybrid and adaptive algorithm.
When compared to commercial package HEEDS, PSO is simple to implement and may be coded by research groups with limited resources and fine-tuned to suit their specific needs.
Equation 1 was used for inverse modeling procedures for PSO and HEEDS methods to compare the rates of material parameters obtained and the speed of the loading process in general.
Taakin Heeds is at the Gala Theatre, Durham, from Wednesday to July 8.
Under the terms of the agreement, Comet Solutions will immediately become a reseller of the HEEDS MDO software from Red Cedar Technology, and work will begin to provide tighter software integration between the Comet Workspace and design exploration and optimization software from Red Cedar Technology.
Red Cedar Technology also announced the release of the newest version of its nonparametric shape optimization software, HEEDS [R] NP 2.0, which now offers support for Nastran.
