A method of designing bridge wing walls which are of minimum length and of minimum area

The conception of a bridge wing wall of minimum length and of minimum area was given to the author by Mr. H. R. Ward, BSc, AMICE, AMIMunE, Chief Assistant Engineer to the Salop County Council. This gentleman made a tour of parts of West Germany in 1957 for the purpose of studying post-war bridge and road design and noted the practice of German engineers of using triangular wing walls lying in the plane of the bridge parapets. The wing walls which are the subject of this paper are shorter in length and less in area than those just mentioned. C. McKay
