# How to Determine the Concrete Volume for a Boundary Wall

Construction Software

In this exclusive civil engineering video tutorial, you will learn how to determine the volume of concrete for footing, column, beam for 150 feet boundary wall.

Go through the following step-by-step methods :-

PCC : Base of footing = Length x Width x Thickness = 1.05m x 1.05m x 0.075m = 0.083 cubic meter

So, concrete required for PCC for a single footing = 0.083 cubic meter

Total volume of concrete required for base = 0.083 x 14 = 1.162 cubic meter
(as there are total 14 columns)

Coping = Length x thickness of wall x thickness of coping = 3 x 0.25 x 0.1 = 0.075 cubic meter

(Coping belongs to a structure that is built up on top of wing-walls, return-walls, boundary walls & parapet wall etc. to safeguard the masonry. The coping is provided to discharge the rain water during rainy season & make aesthetics of the structure/wall better.)

Total volume of concrete required for coping = 0.075 x 14 = 1.05 cubic meter
(as there are 14 nos. plinth beams)

Base required under plinth beam = 3 x 0.55 x 0.075 = 0.124 cubic meter
(here 3 = length; 0.55 = soffit + extension on both sides; 0.075 = thickness of PCC bed)

So, total volume of concrete for base = 0.124 x 14 = 1.736 cubic meter

Therefore, total PCC = 1.162 + 1.05 + 1.736 = 3.948 cubic meter

Grade of concrete is selected as M10

Ratio = 1:3:6 i.e. Cement : Sand : Course Aggregates
