This paper introduces a simple formulation for topology optimization problems . The method distinguishes itself from existing methods by using the advection-diffusion equation with Robin boundary conditions to perform a filtering of the design variables . The proposedapproach is less computationally expensive than the traditional methods used . The approach is easy to implement on unstructured meshes and in adistributed memory setting. Finally, the proposed approach can be performed with few to no continuation steps in any system parameters .
