Optimal design of an elastic rod for given total elongation is discussed when both the axial loads and the steady-state temperature field in the rod depend on the design. Numerical results are presented for a rod that carries a given mass at the tip and rotates about an axis through the root that is perpendicular to the axis of the rod, while tip and root are kept at different temperatures and the lateral surface of the rod is thermally insulated.
