## How to use Concrete Column Calculator?

Concrete Column Calculator will provide you the wet as well as dry volume of concrete of given number of rectangular and circular column. Concrete Column Calculator is very easy to use. Just follow the steps below.

**Step 1:-** Input the dimension of rectangular and circular column i.e length, width, height and diameter.

**Step2:-** If you have rectanguler column then select rectangular and if you have circular column then select circular by clicking on the side arrow.

**Step3:- **Input the quantity of rectangular or circular column.

**Step4:-** Click on calculate button to get the total wet and dry volume of concrete column. If you want to learn how to calculate the dry volume and wet volume of concrete, then scroll down the article.

## How to calculate column concrete Quantity?

Volume of concrete in a column depends upon the shape and size of the column. Let us calculate volume of rectangular and circular column step by step.

### A) Volume of rectangular concrete column

Let, Length of column = (l) = 1 meter

Width of column = (w) = 1 meter

Height of column = (h) = 5 meter

Now,

**Step1:-** Calculate volume of concrete of column

Wet Volume = l x w x h = 1 x 1 x 5 =** 5 m ^{3}**

**Step2:-** Dry Volume = Wet volume x 1.54 = 5 x 1.54 = **7.7 m ^{3}**

(Note* – Dry volume of concrete is always greater than wet volume by **50% to 54%**)

### B) How to calculate concrete for circular column?

Let, Radius of column = (r) = 1 meter

Height of column = (h) = 5 meter

Now,

**Step1:-** Calculate volume of concrete of column

Wet Volume = 3.14 x r x r x h = 3.14 x 1 x 1 x 5 =** 15.7 m ^{3}**

**Step2:-** Dry Volume = Wet volume x 1.54 = 15.7 x 1.54 = **24.1 m ^{3}**

(Note* – Dry volume of concrete is always greater than wet volume by **50% to 54%**)

Hence in this way we can calculate the volume of concrete in a rectangular and circular column.
