Concrete  Calculating Cubic Volume
Calculating the concrete volume required for an operation.
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}
