Is it possible to create a cantilever beam with constant or increasing stiffness. I've been experimenting with several different shapes and profiles, and have not had any luck.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that there are shapes with constant stress throughout, but I'm hoping to find a shape with constant or increasing stiffness, or the shape of a cantilever beam that has maximum stiffness throughout.
