The **Volume of a Footer using the Cross-Section Area** calculator computes the volume of concrete in a footer based on the length and cross-section area.

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

- (
**L**) Length of Footer - (
**A**) Footer Cross-section Area

**Concrete Volume (V): **The volume is returned in cubic yards and the equivalent in 80lb and 60lb bags. Note: vCalc provides automatic conversions into many other volume units such as cubic meters and feet.

The formula for the volume of a footer based on length and cross-section area is:

V = A ⋅ l

where:

- V = volume of the footer
- A = Cross-section area
- l = length of the footer.

Area (**A**) is calculated by multiplying the width by the height (or depth in this case). To compute the cross-section area,CLICK HERE.

**Blocks in a Foundation**: Computes the number of blocks needed for a foundation based on the dimensions of the foundation and the size of the blocks with a standard size mortar joint.**Concrete in a Poured Foundation**: Computes the volume of concrete, the square feet of the forms and the number of 4'x8's needed for the forms.**Concrete in a Wall**: Computes the volume of concrete in a wall based on the dimensions.**Concrete in a Footer:**Computes the volume of concrete for a footer based on the length, width and depth of the footer.**Concrete in a Footer (Cross Section)**: Computes the volume of concrete for a footer based on the length and cross-section area of a footer**Concrete in a Pier:**Computes the volume of concrete in a circular pier based on the radius and depth of the pier.**Piers for a Building**: Computes the number of piers and volume of concrete need for the piers of a building (e.g., pole barn) base on the building dimensions, pier spacing, diameter and depth.**Concrete around Circular Post**: Computes the volume of concrete around a number of round posts in a round hole based on the size of the hole and dimensions of the post.**Concrete around Square Post**: Computes the volume of concrete around a number of square post (e.g., 6x6) in round hole based on the dimensions of the post, depth and width of the round hole.**Water Needed for Concrete**: Computes the water volume needed to mix concrete.**Price of Bulk Concrete:**Computes the price of bulk concrete including delivery based on mileage and on-site pumping cost.
