There is a solver called adjointShapeOptimizationFoam which do a kind of Topology Optimization. It is called shape optimization, but it has "design strategy" similar to what we see as Topology Optimization in structural area.

If you check "adjointShapeOptimizationFoam.C" at /opt/openfoam4/applications/solvers/incompressible/adjointShapeOptimizationFoam you will see a reference paper. You will be able to find some more. Quite interesting by the way...

Hope it helped you!

Best Regards,
