Ever need to figure out just how much concrete you
will need to fill a slab, a block wall, or a concrete column?
Well, here is an easy way to The Concrete Calculators help you to estimate the concrete volume required for a pour or placement, the volume of
concrete needed to fill a block wall, and the volume of concrete
needed in a column.
Note that you can cut and paste values between the
various construction calculators. For instance, you could take the result from the
concrete volume calculator (which gives results in cubic yards) and plug it into the
volume conversion calculator to convert your results to cubic meters.
To use the Concrete Volume Calculator, simply
enter the width, length, and thickness of your pour, click on whether you are measuring
the thickness in feet or inches, then click on the Calculate button. The
calculator will estimate the number of cubic yards of concrete that will be required.
To use the Block Wall Calculator, simply enter
the height and length of the wall, click on whether you are filling an 8-inch or 12-inch
wall, then click on the Calculate button. The calculator will estimate
the number of cubic yards that will be required. Note that this is an estimate.
There is significant variation in fill space among different blocks. This calculator
assumes the use of double open-ended bond beam blocks.
To use the Concrete Column Calculator, simply enter the
height and diameter of the column, and click on the Calculate button. The
calculator will display the number of cubic yards required.
