Content of Horizontal or Sloped Cylindrical Tanks or Pipes

Volume of partly filled horizontal or sloped cylindrical tanks or pipes - online calculator

The online calculator below can be used to calculate the volume and mass of liquid in a partly filled horizontal or sloped cylindrical tank if you know the inside diameter and the level of the liquid the tank. The calculator can also be used for partly filled circular pipes.

content in horizontal circular tanks

The calculator outputs

  • the liquid volume in the tank
  • the liquid mass
  • the central angle
  • the chord length
  • the arc length
  • the cross sectional area of both liquid and air
  • the air volume in the tank

The calculator is generic and can be used for common metric and imperial units as long as the values are based on the same units.

inside diameter of tank or pipe - d - (m, ft, in)

liquid level inside tank or pipe - h - (m, ft, in)

liquid density - ρ - (kg/m3, lb/ft3, lb/in3)

length of tank or pipe - L - (m, ft, in)

slope of tank (degrees)
