The generalization contains both previous solutions and also shows when another class of optimizers, ruled out necessarily in the structures problems, can occur. A peculiar borderline parameter choice giving an infinite number of optimal solutions will also be shown. Extension of the results to Euler-Bernouilli beams will be mentioned. The method used will be Pontryagin¹s Maximum Principle, usually considered to be part of dynamical systems and control theory.
