  • Abstract:
    Presented is a systematic methodology for rationally determining the esthetic appeal of bridge designs by the use of paired line drawings where one visual factor at a time is varied. These paired drawings are then judged by either a preselected or randomly selected group of people. An example (using a standard bridge overpass) is selected as a vehicle to explain the method. The method is such that conclusions can be clearly drawn from the judgments of the example. The results show that esthetic preference is generally given to such factors as simplicity, slimness, symmetry, conformity to the site, and expression of out of the ordinary characteristics. Other more detailed conclusions are also determined, and presented in the body of the report.
