The **Volume of a Circular Column** calculator computes the volume (**V**) of a circular column * Concrete column or pier *based on the radius (**r**) and height (**h**) of the column.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**h**) Height of the column or pier. - (
**r**) Radius of the column or pier. - (
**n**) Number of columns or piers.

**Column Volume (V):** The calculator returns the volume in cubic yards. However this can be automatically converted to other volume units via the pull-down menu.

The formula for the volume of a circular column is:

V = π•r²•h•n

where:

- V = Volume of the column
- r = radius of the base
- h = height of the column
- n = number of columns or piers

Piers are often poured in tube moldings with rebar (See Rebar Calc) to provide structural strength.

For the DIY crowd that mixes their own concrete, vCalc provides a tool to convert volume in cubic units (cubic feet, yards or meters) to the number of bags of concrete in the following sizes:

- 40lb bags
- 60lb bags
- 80lb bags

Take the answer from this calculator and enter it in the Concrete Bags from Volume calculator (CLICK HERE).
