Q. If I have a pile of concrete, how can I calculate how much concrete is in the pile?
A. A cubic yard of concrete measures 3' wide by 3' tall by 3' thick which equals 27 cubic feet. If the pile is 10 feet tall by 15 feet wide by 10 feet thick, this equals 1,500 cubic feet. Divide this by 27 and you get the cubic yardage which in this example equals 55.5 cubic yards.
