The **Sand Required for a Sandbag Wall **calculator estimates volume of sand needed for a single bag wide wall of height (H) and length (L).

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

- (
**L**) This is the length of the sandbag wall. - (
**H**) This is the height of the sandbag wall.

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

#### Sandbag Calculators:

- Compute the number of sandbags for flood dike
- Compute the amount of sand needed for a flood dike
- Compute the number of sandbags for a one bag deep wall
- Compute the amount of sand needed for a one bag deep wall
- Compute the time (labor hours) to fill and stack sandbags
- Compute the weight of an number of filled sandbags.
- Compute the weight of a volume of sand (wet, dry, loose, packed)

### The Math / Science

The volume of sand needed for a sandbag wall is approximately the walls length times its height times its width. This equation assumes the width is one bag laid lengthwise. The width of a standard bag is fourteen inches (14"). When partially filled with sand, the width is approximately twelve inches (12") which is used in this formula.
