We describe a technique applicable to optimize certain quantities associated with the two-phase structure described by a model of penetrable grains. The solution is given in a form of an intensity surface that controls locations of the grains. Particular examples include maximization of the expected phase 2 volume and design of functionally graded materials with a given density profile.
