Calculating the concrete volume required for an operation.
Concrete and mortar are normally delivered on a cubic volume basis. Cubic volume can be calculated as
V = l w h (1)
V = cubic volume (yd3, ft3, m3)
l = length (yd, ft, m)
w = width (yd, ft, m)
h = height (yd, ft, m)
- 1 ft3 = 0.02832 m3= 28.32 dm3 = 0.03704 yd3
- 1 yd3 = 0.7646 m3 = 764.6 dm3 = 27 ft3
