Enter the radius of the concrete column (ft) and the depth of the concrete column (ft) into the Concrete Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Concrete Volume. 

Concrete Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Concrete Volume. 

CV = pi*r^2 *d

  • Where VC is the Concrete Volume (ft^3)
  • r is the radius of the concrete column (ft) 
  • d is the depth of the concrete column (ft) 

How to Calculate Concrete Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Concrete Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the radius of the concrete column (ft). 
    1. The radius of the concrete column (ft) is given as: 4.
  2. Next, determine the depth of the concrete column (ft). 
    1. The depth of the concrete column (ft) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Concrete Volume using the equation above: 

CV = pi*r^2 *d

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

CV = 3.14159*4^2 *10 = 502.654 (ft^3)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

radius of the concrete column (ft) = 3

depth of the concrete column (ft) = 5

Entering these values and solving gives:

CV = 3.14159*3^2 *5 = 141.37 (ft^3)
