How to install Topology optimization

My institute provides me ANSYS Academic version R19.2. But, I am not finding "topology optimization" while installing ANSYS products.

Can you please let me know if separate license is needed for it or where can I find it after installation.

Also please let me know if I can use Topology optimization to optimize the shape of a hot surface surrounded by a convecting fluid.

Thanks & Regards,

    Assuming you are installing the software in default directory, you can use the following command in CMD Prompt to test if you have license for Topology optimizationn

    "C:\Program Files\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\winx64\ansysli_util" -checkout MECH_TOPO_ENTRY

    For usage question, I recommend posting this under

    or its corresponding physics section.
