Length in feet x width in feet x depth in feet (inches divide by 12 to convert to feet) then divide by 27 to get cubic yardage.
How to Measure Concrete Yards?
Measuring concrete yards is a straightforward process that can be done with a few simple tools. Concrete yards are usually measured in cubic yards, which is equal to 27 cubic feet. To measure concrete yards, you will need a tape measure, a calculator, and a yardstick.
Begin by measuring the area that you need to fill with concrete. Use the tape measure to determine the length, width, and depth of the area that needs to be filled. Multiply the length by the width to find the square feet. Multiply the square feet by the depth to find the cubic feet. Divide the cubic feet by 27 to find the cubic yards needed.
Next, you will need to measure the amount of concrete required. Place a yardstick in the bottom of the area that needs to be filled and measure the depth. Multiply the length and width of the area by the depth of the yardstick to find the cubic yards.
To make sure you get an accurate measurement, you may need to use a calculator. Type in the length, width, depth, and yardstick measurement to calculate the cubic yards of concrete that you need. You can also use the calculator to convert cubic yards to cubic feet or cubic inches.
