Steady-state solver for incompressible, turbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids with optimisation of duct shape by applying "blockage" in regions causing pressure loss as estimated using an adjoint formulation.

"Implementation of a continuous adjoint for topology optimization of ducted flows" C. Othmer, E. de Villiers, H.G. Weller AIAA-2007-3947 http://pdf.aiaa.org/preview/CDReadyMCFD07_1379/PV2007_3947.pdf

Note that this solver optimises for total pressure loss whereas the above paper describes the method for optimising power-loss.
