Enter the berm base (in), the height (in), and the length (in) into the Berm Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Berm Volume. 

Berm Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Berm Volume. 

BV = 1/2*B*H*L
  • Where BV is the Berm Volume (in^3)
  • B is the berm base (in) 
  • H is the height (in) 
  • L is the length (in) 

To calculate berm volume, multiply the berm base, height, and length, then divide the result by 2.

How to Calculate Berm Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Berm Volume.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the berm base (in).
    1. The berm base (in) is given as 3.
  2. Next, determine the height (in).
    1. The height (in) is calculated as: 4.
  3. Next, determine the length (in).
    1. The length (in) is found to be: 50.
  4. Finally, calculate the Berm Volume using the formula above: 

BV = 1/2*B*H*L

Inserting the values from above yields: 

BV = 1/2*3*4*50 = 300 (in^3)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

berm base (in) = 6

height (in) = 7

length (in) = 80

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

BV = 1/2*B*H*L = (in^3)
