Abstract:
A concrete arch, in harmony with its surroundings, but without ornamentation or embellishment of any kind, is an exceedingly beautiful structure. A concrete girder under similar conditions may be an exceedingly ugly structure. Why is it that the concrete girder bridge presents so undesirable an appearance, while the arch bridge presents so undesirable an appearance?
