Concrete Calculator

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.
