Enter the volume of concrete produced and the weight of the materials used into the calculator to determine the concrete yield. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Concrete Yield Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the concrete yield.

Y = V / (W / D)

Variables:

• Y is the concrete yield (cubic yards or cubic meters) V is the volume of concrete produced (cubic yards or cubic meters) W is the weight of the materials used (pounds or kilograms) D is the density of the concrete (pounds per cubic yard or kilograms per cubic meter)

To calculate the concrete yield, divide the volume of concrete produced by the weight of the materials used. Then, divide this result by the density of the concrete. The result is the yield of the concrete.

## What is a Concrete Yield?

Concrete yield is a term used in the construction industry to refer to the volume of concrete produced per batch. It is calculated by dividing the total weight of the materials used in the batch by the density of the concrete. The yield is usually expressed in cubic yards or cubic meters. It is an important measure as it helps in determining the amount of materials needed for a project, the cost of the project, and the quality of the concrete produced.

## How to Calculate Concrete Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Concrete Yield.

1. First, determine the volume of concrete produced (V) in cubic yards or cubic meters.
2. Next, determine the weight of the materials used (W) in pounds or kilograms.
3. Next, determine the density of the concrete (D) in pounds per cubic yard or kilograms per cubic meter.
4. Finally, use the formula Y = V / (W / D) to calculate the Concrete 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.

volume of concrete produced (V) = 10 cubic yards

weight of the materials used (W) = 5000 pounds

density of the concrete (D) = 150 pounds per cubic yard
