A relative optimization of a generalized non-dimensional form of the cantilevered Euler beam is accomplished by the application of an adjoint variational principle in conjunction with a generalized Ritz procedure. Considerable weight reductions are shown to be possible within the bounds of imposed constraints for a two term Ritz approximation of Haugers problem. Author
