# Concrete - Calculate Cubic Volume

## Calculating required concrete volume

Concrete and mortar are normally delivered on a cubic volume basis. Cubic volume can be calculated as

V = l w h (1)

where

V = cubic volume (yd^{3}, ft^{3}, m^{3})

l = length (yd, ft, m)

w = width (yd, ft, m)

h = height (yd, ft, m)

*1 ft*^{3}= 0.02832 m^{3}= 28.32 dm^{3}= 0.03704 yd^{3}*1 yd*^{3}= 0.7646 m^{3}= 764.6 dm^{3}= 27 ft^{3}
