We discuss recent extensions of the topology optimization method to wave-propagation and flow problems. More specifically, we optimize material distribution in scalar wave propagation problems modelled by Helmholtz equation. Moreover, we investigate the influence of the inertia term on the optimal flow topology for fluid flow problems with moderate Reynolds numbers.
