We present an analysis of the work of human participants in addressing design problems by analogy. We describe a computer pro- gram, called Galatea, that simulates the visual input and output of four experimental participants. Since Galatea is an operational com- puter program, it makes specific commitments about the visual representations and reasoning it uses for analogical transfer. In particular, Galatea provides a computational model of how human designers might be generating new designs by incremental transfer of the problem-solving procedure used in previous design cases. 2009 Elsevier B.V.
