In this paper, we propose a topological sensitivity analysis for the Quasi-Stokes equations. It consists in an asymptotic expansion of a cost function with respect to the creation of a small hole in the domain. The leading term of this expansion is related to the principal part of the operator. The theoretical part of this work is discussed in both two and three dimensional cases. In the numerical part, we use this approach to optimize the locations of a fixed number of air injectors in an eutrophized...

The gradient based topological optimization tools introduced during the last ten years tend naturally to modify the topology of a domain by creating small holes inside the domain. Once these holes have been created, they usually remain unchanged, at least during the topological phase of the optimization algorithm. In this paper, a new asymptotic expansion is introduced which allows to decide whether an existing hole must be removed or not for improving the cost function. Then, two numerical examples...
