Many experts use linguistic values when expressing their judgment on structural performance. The concept of fuzzy sets is used in this paper to obtain consistent measures of values provided by the experts and to reach a consensus if the experts provide different values. For this purpose, translational and rotational models are employed. A relatively simple method is demonstrated to illustrate the use of this concept graphically.
