Theoretical investigations in the area of optimum structural design have increased dramatically during the past decade. The idea of finding a structure of minimum weight has long intrigued the designer. The present work is concerned with minimum weight cantilever beams subjected to either a concentrated tip load or a uniformly distributed load. The problem in itself has some interesting practical significance in that the weight penalties for certain structures such as transmission poles and chimneys can be approximately deduced from the cantilever beam results.
