Concrete Calculator for Pads - Imperial

Calculate the amount of concrete needed for pouring a concrete pad.

Column + Pad Concrete Volume Calculator

Formula's used:

length * width * depth * number = V

Sample Calculation:
number of pads = 12
pad length = 2' - 6"
pad width =  2' - 6"
depth = 10"
Convert inch values to foot values to be able to calculate.
2' - 6" = 2 + 6 / 12 =  2.5 feet
10" = 10 / 12 = 0.833 feet
2.5 * 2.5 *  0.833 * 12 = 62.475 cubic feet of concrete
To convert cubic feet to cubic yards multiply cubic feet * 0.037037037037037
To convert cubic feet to cubic metres multiply cubic feet * 0.028316846592
To convert cubic yards to cubic metres multiply cubic yards * 0.764554857984

When Ordering Concrete

This concrete calculator will help you in estimating the amount of concrete needed for your project. The amount given as needed, does not include any waste. It is recommended, depending on the job you are doing, to add anywhere from an extra 4% to 10% to your concrete order to make sure you have enough concrete to finish the job. Ask when ordering the concrete. They will be able to give you a good idea of what is needed.
