Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: The objective of this research is to provide design guidance that would allow field engineers to design approach guard walls that are safe and efficient to the users, while being cost effective. The guidance available in EM 1110-2-1611 (Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 1980) and rule-of-thumb guidelines requires approach walls to be fairly long; therefore, the cost of implementing the approach walls can be substantial.
