Enter the weight of asphalt (lbs) and the density of compacted asphalt (lbs/ft^3) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Asphalt Yield. 

Asphalt Yield Formula

AY  = WA / D


  • AY is the Asphalt Yield (ft^3)
  • WA is the weight of asphalt (lbs)
  • D is the density of compacted asphalt (lbs/ft^3)

To calculate Asphalt Yield, divide the weight of the asphalt by the density of the compacted asphalt.

How to Calculate Asphalt Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Asphalt Yield.

  1. First, determine the weight of asphalt (lbs). 
  2. Next, determine the density of compacted asphalt (lbs/ft^3). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = AY = WA / D.
  4. Finally, calculate the Asphalt Yield.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

weight of asphalt (lbs) = 50,000

density of compacted asphalt (lbs/ft^3) = 146
