Enter the length, width, and height of the area to be covered with crushed concrete into the calculator to determine the volume of crushed concrete needed; this calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Crushed Concrete Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the volume of crushed concrete needed for a project:

V = (L * W * H)

Variables:

• V is the volume of crushed concrete needed
• L is the length of the area to be covered with crushed concrete
• W is the width of the area to be covered with crushed concrete
• H is the height or thickness of the crushed concrete layer

To calculate the volume of crushed concrete needed, multiply the length of the area by the width of the area, and then multiply the result by the height or thickness of the crushed concrete layer.

## What is Crushed Concrete?

Crushed concrete, also known as recycled concrete aggregate (RCA), is an environmentally friendly material often used in construction. It is created by breaking down used concrete from structures such as buildings, roads, and bridges into small pieces, which can then be processed and screened for impurities before being sold as a cheaper alternative to virgin aggregate.

The process of creating crushed concrete is less energy-intensive than producing new concrete, making it a more sustainable choice. It is commonly used as a base layer for roads and parking lots, in landscaping, and for making new concrete. Despite being recycled, crushed concrete is durable and provides the same level of quality as new materials.
