Total Concrete Required for Square/Rectangular Formwork

Concrete Required (m3) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) / 1 (m3)

Concrete Required (m3) = 1 (m3) Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m)

Equation to Calculate Volume for Round Formwork

Volume = π × (Radius)2 × Height

Radius =Diameter / 2

Height: The height of the round form (in meters).

π (Pi): A mathematical constant approximately equal to 3.14159.

What is a

Concrete Calculator

A concrete calculator is a tool used to estimate the amount of concrete required for a construction project. This calculator is particularly useful for projects involving the pouring of concrete slabs, footings, columns, or other structures. 

By inputting the dimensions of the area to be filled with concrete, the calculator provides an accurate estimate of the volume of concrete needed, helping to plan and budget for the project effectively.

How to use the 

Concrete Calculator

Select Shape: Choose between square/rectangular or round formwork.

Enter Dimensions:For square/rectangular formwork: Input the length, width, and depth.

For round formwork: Input the diameter and depth.

Calculate: Click the calculate button to see the volume of concrete required.

Review Results: The result will be displayed in cubic meters or cubic feet.

Components of a Concrete Calculator

Input Fields

Length: The length of the formwork in meters or feet.

Width: The width of the formwork in meters or feet (for square/rectangular formwork).

Diameter: The diameter of the formwork in meters or feet (for round formwork).

Depth: The depth of the formwork in meters or feet.

Shape Selection: A dropdown or option to select between square/rectangular or round formwork.

Purpose of a Concrete Calculator

  1. Estimate Material Quantity: Calculates the volume of concrete required based on the dimensions of the formwork.

  2. Cost Estimation: Helps in budgeting by estimating the cost based on the quantity of concrete required.

  3. Project Planning: Assists in planning the logistics of material delivery and storage.

  4. Avoid Wastage: Ensures that the right amount of material is ordered, reducing wastage and minimizing costs.
