The topography optimization is a available as a beta feature in 2022 R1 or 2022 R2.

To activate the beta features, go to the Workbench Menu and Tools, and to Options. Then go under the Appearances left tab and tick the beta options box.

You will then find the Topography (beta) under the Optimization region and under the Optimization Type drop list (one can select it).

It has some limitations though (say we can not use topography optimization to maximize the frequency of a mode from a modal analsysis)
