Answer

Estimated Concrete Volume

8.889 cubic yards

240 cubic feet

Estimated Weight of Concrete

## 15.96 tons

Covering 480 sq. ft. at 6" depthChange dimensions

Optional 10% extra concrete

for waste allowance

10% = 0.89 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 9.78 cubic yards

for waste allowance

10% = 0.89 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 9.78 cubic yards

## Cost Estimate for 32'x15' x6"

Purchasing ready-mix concrete is by far the easiest way to mix concrete for medium to large projects and can even be used on smaller projects as well. We have provided a cost comparison between ready mix and DIY concrete premix bags to give you a rough ballpark estimate.

## Bag Cost Estimate

Pre-mixed concrete bags cost on average $3.50 per 80lb bag. Using pre-mixed bags to cover 480 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

**$1,396.50****$1,396.50**

for 399 x 80lb bags

## Truck Cost Estimate

Ready-mixed concrete costs on average $108.22 per cubic yard delivered. Using a concrete truck to cover 480 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

1.1 x $17.00 = $18.70

$961.96 + $18.70 =

*6 inch pours and under.

**Cost assumes subbase and general prep is done.

**$961.96**Concrete trucks may also charge a **"short load"** fee for partially filled loads. Short load fees are charged at about $17 for every yard not used on the truck.

1.1 x $17.00 = $18.70

$961.96 + $18.70 =

**$980.66****$980.66**

## Concrete Extras

A well-compacted

**subbase**provides a strong foundation for concrete to lay on. We recommend you contact your nearest concrete supplier for their recommendations on whether you need a subbase, base depth, and rock type.With a brief look, a 32x15 area at 6 inches deep, you would need approximately **12.62 tons** or **8.89 cubic yards of gravel**.

**Concrete reinforcing** is also recommended in high traffic areas and medium to large areas. **Wire mesh** on average costs **$0.56 per sq ft** and **fiber mesh** costs **$0.13 per sq ft**.

So for your **480 sq ft area**, this may roughly cost **$268.80** for wire mesh, **$1,440.00** for thicker wire rebar mesh and **$62.40** for fiber mesh.

How to Calculate Concrete Amount for 32x15 x6"

32 * 15 = 480 sq ft

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

480 * 0.5 = 240 cu ft

240 / 27 = 8.8888888888889

= 8.889 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight

8.8888888888889 * 3590 = 31911.11 lbs

Density of concrete used 2130 kg/m

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

480 * 0.5 = 240 cu ft

240 / 27 = 8.8888888888889

= 8.889 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight
