For those who sincerely think HOW to innovate
Here is the LINKED_IN discussion with multiple links highlighting evolution of TRIZ contradiction matrix. The ARIZ 85 C, Darrel mann's article on upgraded matrix and Sciencedirect paper on STEPS (Systematic Tool for Efficient Problem Solving) are worth reading articles. Hope this will help you to get latest updates.

This is a simple problem where Load Capacity of a vertical bar needs to be increased without increasing Lateral areas and Material. There is one proposed solution as shown below. I would like to check two things with you
1. Is the solution proposed really resolves the contradiction? (Load Capacity Vs Crossectional Area)
2. If yes, Which TRIZ principle helps to think of solution like this?
