Earthwork Cross-Section Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Civil Engineering

Earthwork cross-section volume is the volume between two cross-section areas.

 

Earthwork Cross-Section Volume formula

\(\large{ V =  \frac{  l \;  \left(  A_1 \;+\; A_2  \right)  }{ 2 }  }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ V }\) = earthwork volume

\(\large{ A_1 }\) = cross-section area

\(\large{ A_2 }\) = cross-section area

\(\large{ l }\) = length between 2 cross-section areas
