RESTON, Va. – In this age of increasing dependency on electricity to support digital lifestyles and economic development, new transmission lines are continually being required. Public opinion has evolved from welcoming new power lines as a sign of societal progress to now having to accept their presence on the landscape as a necessity.

ASCE’s latest publication, Aesthetic Design of Electric Transmission Structures provides a greater understanding of aesthetics in the design of transmission line structures and presents thoughtful integration concepts that can positively alter resulting visual impact. Intended as a starting point to help engineers think about aesthetics, the book will also assist them in how to appropriately incorporate them within projects at the design stage.

Overhead line engineers, structural engineers, and construction managers will find this a valuable resource, providing them insight when designing and building electrical transmission structures.
