# Cubic Yard Calculator

The cubic yard calculator calculates cubic yardage based on input of the *Length*, *Width*, and *Height* of a given space in feet or inches (*or* *both**feet* and *inches* if you prefer). This calculator can be used as a concrete cubic *yardage* calculator for estimating the amount of concrete needed for a slab or patio ** or** as a cubic

*footage*calculator to determine the cubic feet of a room or shipping container.

Enter the *Length*, *Width* and *Height* values and click the ** Calculate** button. For each of the three values, you can enter the number in

*feet**and/or*

*. The two fields are added together, so it really doesn't matter what combination you use.*

## Cubic Yard Calculator

This free online calculator also calculates the total cubic feet of *any* given cube shaped object or room. This can be helpful for sizing air conditioners and heating units.

There are many situations where this calculator can be useful. Try entering different numbers in the ** Feet** and

**fields to see how this calculator works.**

*Inches*## Estimating Concrete

The cubic yard calculator is perfect for estimating concrete, because when you call a concrete company and order concrete, the first question they will ask is, "How many yards of concrete do you need?"

I used this calculator to estimate the amount of concrete I needed for a 10 x 20 slab that I was pouring for my backyard patio. I designed my slab to be 6 inches thick and used wire mesh and rebar to reinforce the slab. If you plug these dimensions into the cubic yard calculator, the result will be 3.7 cubic yards (or a fraction value of 3 11/16 cubic yards). I always order a little more than what I need - you don't want to come up short when pouring a slab.

## Using the Cubic Yard Calculator

To use this calculator, enter the width, length and height in inches *or* feet (or in feet *and* inches if you prefer). If you enter values in both the feet and inches fields, the two values will be added together. For instance, if you enter a value of 2 in the "feet" field and a value of 12 in the "inches" field, the result will be 36 inches (or 3 feet).
