We study the optimal design problem of finding the minimal energy configuration for a mixture of two conducting materials with a perimeter penalization of the unknown domain, when a volume constraint is added. We prove that minimizers of the constrained problem also minimize an unconstrained problem with a volume penalization for which regualarity results are available in the literature.
Keywords: Perimeter penalization, volume constraint, regularity.
