# Quonset Hut Surface Area

KurtHeckman.Quonset Hut Surface Area

The **Quonset Hut Surface Area** calculator computes the exterior surface area (**A) **of a Quonset hut based on simple measurements. This includes the roof and both ends. See YouTube instruction video for this formula HERE. * Common Quonset Hut*

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose your preferred length units (e.g. feet or meters) and enter the following:

- (L) Length of the Quonset Hut
- (H) Height of the Quonset Hut
- (W) Width of the Quonset Hut

The calculator returns the surface area (**A**) in square meters. However this can be automatically converted into other area units via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math

The calculator assumes that the face of the Quonset hut is half of an ellipse (or circle if W = 2*H). From that, the tally of the total surface area gets pretty easy using the formulas for the Area of an Ellipse, and the Circumference of an Ellipse.

# USES

The surface area of a Quonset Hut is useful for calculating construction material needs and for computing the conductive heat loss of the Quonset hut.
