I would like someone to help me find out how to go from square feet to number of tons needed: For example my driveway is 18 x 63 feet = 1134 sq ft. My driveway needs to have 4" of asphalt. How may tons will that require?

You can calculate volume using one of the following formulas:

volume = length * width * height
volume = area * height

though both need to be in the same base unit, so convert inches to feet first.

1134 square feet * (4 inches / 12) feet = 378 cubic feet

Now to convert volume such as cubic feet to weight such as tons, it depends on the density of the substance. If you let me know the substance I may be able to look up the density.

For example, sand would have a different conversion than gravel.

Crushed asphalt is 45 pounds/cubic foot

378 cubic foot * 45 pounds/cubic foot = 17010 pounds

17010 pounds / 2000 = 8.5 tons

6500 square foot * (1.5 inches / 12) foot = 812.5 cubic foot

812.5 cubic foot * 45 pounds/cubic foot = 36562.5 pounds

36562.5 pounds / 2000 = 18.28 tons

Hi, square feet is an area, which doesn't have any weight. To work out what weight you need or have, you need two more parameters. You need the depth of the area you are interested in, and you need the density of the substance you want to remove (or fill it with).

Density is the weight for volume of a particular material. As you can see from the above posts, crushed ashphalt is 45 pounds per cubic foot.

This means if you have a box of ashpahlt which is 12" x 12" x 12", then the ashphalt will weigh 45 pounds. A cubic foot of a different material will probably weigh a different amount.

To answer your question, work out how many cubic feet you need, then work out how much that many cubic feet will weigh.

To get an exact number use the following;

1134/10.76 = 105.40 m^2

1" = 2.54cm

4"*2.54 = 10.16cm

10.16/100 = .11

now that you have the SQFT in square meters and the depth in centimeter you can finish the formular

105.40*.11 = 10.70

10.70*1.7 = 18.2 AMERICAN TON

I have a two mile section of driveway that is 24 feet wide, and we are placing a 2 inch overlay. What would be a good estimate on tons of HMA needed?

Joe Zach
07-03-2009, 11:53 AM
Area of driveway = 1134 s.f; 1134s.f / 9 = 126 S.Y

1 MT of asphalt will cover 18 S.Y. of area with 1 inch thick.

Tons required = {126 /18} x 1 inch thick = 7 Tons for 1 inch thick

For 4 inch thick = 7 MT x 4 inches = 28 Tons (total)

[Please note you do not need 4 inch thick asphalt if it is a normal usage home driveway.
Put 4 inch sub-base and 2 inch asphalt.
Together it should cost you \$3.00 per s.f. = 1134 x \$3.00/s.f = \$3400.00 for both sub-base and asphalt.]

I have a two mile section of driveway that is 24 feet wide, and we are placing a 2 inch overlay. What would be a good estimate on tons of HMA needed?

I’m assuming you are the owner of this driveway, as any HMA contractor asking about quantities on an Internet forum would be the one NOT to use! A 2” overlay, 2 miles long and 24’ wide will cost a few dollars!

10560’ long * 24’ wide = 253440 ft2
2” / 12” = 0.1667’, so 253440 ft2 * 0.1667 ft = 42240 ft3
42240 ft3 / 27 ft3 * 2.025 tons/cy3 = 3168 tons HMA needed (approximate)

I know nothing of your project but before you proceed, address the reasons why you believe an overlay is needed. If sub-grade problems exist, take steps to repair them first. It will save you a lot of money in the future. Distress and failure of existing asphalt will migrate to the new asphalt over time.

There are less expensive ways to repair your existing road if the structural integrity of the existing pavement and sub-grade is sound.

Before you proceed, I suggest you read through the following website, especially under the tab “Maint and Rehab”, at: http://www.asphaltwa.com/wapa_web/index.htm (http://www.asphaltwa.com/wapa_web/index.htm) Another excellent site is NAPA at: http://www.hotmix.org/index.php (http://www.hotmix.org/index.php)

Problem #1: The density of fresh water is 1 g/cm³, salt water 1.025 g/cm³, so your teacher gave you an anchor, not a ship. The ship's average density must be less than that of water to float.

Problem #2: What kind of tonnage. Reguister tons are actually a volume (100 cu ft) of cargo capacity. Displacement tons are the weight of water the ship displaces. Deadweight tons are the the weight of cargo, crew, fuel, etc, everything except the empty ship.

Problem 3 what kind of tons, long (2240 lb, short (2000 lb) or metric (1000 kg).

It depends on what you are trying to apply:

*Agricultural product like fertilizer: You would have to know the application rate, pounds per square foot, or tons per acre or something.

Stone, cement, and the like: You would have to know the density to convert weight to volume, and the thickness you want to convert volume to area.

I have an area that is 120 X 100 and needs about 4 inches of dirt. What does that convert to in tons?

120 ft * 100 ft * (4"/12") = 120 ft * 100 ft * 0.333 ft = 3996 ft3. To obtain yd3, divide ft3by 27, which = 148 yd3.

Weight is another matter, which is dependent on the type of material wanted or needed, admixtures, moisture content and compaction.

An exact weight is impossible but before we can even give a range to work with, additional information is needed. What type of 'dirt' and what is the end product for this 'dirt'? Sub-base for concrete? Garden or planting medium? Building foundation?

21 ft * 48 ft * (2 in / 12 in/ft) = 21 ft * 48 ft * 0.167 ft = 168.34 ft3

The weight of HMA (hot mix asphalt) depends on the compacted density but it should approach 150 lb/ft3.

168.34 ft3 * 150 lb/ft3 = 25 251 lbs / 2000 lbs/ton = 12.63 tons

If it is zero feet thick, you don't need any, so the square footage is not enough information. You must multiple by the thickness to get volume. Usually volumes of materials are specified in cubic yards. If you have an area in square feet, and a thickness in inches, then volume is
V = (A/9)* (T/36) = A*T/324 cubic yards
(the factors convert area to square yards and thickness to yards)

The density of materials depends on how loose it is, precise composition, and moisture content. To account for looseness when delivered, multiply above volume by 1.2 to determine how many cubic yards to order. If ordered in tons, assume about 1.5 ton/yd for dry sand/gravel, may be up to 1.7 ton/yd for wet.

The volume calculation is exact, but the packing factor and density are approximations for typical materials. You may encounter some variation.

Approximately 7 tons. Although it's dependent of the base rock, average densities for screened gravel run in the neighborhood of 105.5 lb/ft3 (dry) to 125.9 lb/ft3 (wet).

Using an average of 115 lb/ft3: 2875 ft2 * (0.5 in / 12 in) ft * 115 lb/ft3 / 2000 lb/ton = 6.88 tons

Depends on the density of the flagstone (which is a generic term for any flat, natural stone such as slate, bluestone, etc) and how thick the slabs are, which you don't provide.

Density can range from 140 lbs/ft3 to over 180 lbs/ft3. I suggest you call a company that deals with the type of flagstone pavers you want and talk to them.

Properly compacted DG can reach 133 lbs/ft3 or slightly higher. Using 133 lbs/ft3:

80 ft * 80 ft * 0.333 ft = 2131 ft3 * 133 lbs/ft3 / 2000 lbs/ton = 141.7 tons

FWIW, if you're thinking about making a driveway out of it, I doubt you'll be happy with it when it rains.

i need ti figure out how many ons of pea gravel i need to shade 4inches on bottom and 4inches on top my trench is 60 feet long 2 feet wide with a 15 inch pipe in it how many tons of pea gravel do i need??

(Cross-section of total fill – cross-section of pipe) * length * density of gravel.

Convert measurements to like units:
(15”+8”)/12” = 1.92 ft
15”/12” = 1.25 ft

Cross-section of fill area in ft3: 1.92 ft * 2 ft = 3.84 ft2
Cross-section of 15” dia. pipe (displacement): 1.252 ft * PI/4 = 1.2272 ft2

3.84 ft2 – 1.2272 ft2 = 2.6128 ft2 * 60 ft = 156.768 ft3

Density of wet pea gravel (bank density) is approximately 129.6 lbs/ft3, so: 156.8 ft3 * 129.6 lbs/ft3 / 2000 lbs/ton = 10.15 tons.

As trench sides are seldom uniform, I would add 10% to be safe (having to order an extra ton of gravel, along with related trucking costs isn’t cheap).

30' x 1' x 2' = 60 ft³
It is delivered loose. Allow say 15% for compaction, 60 ft³ x 1.15 = 69 ft³
1 yd³ is 27 ft³, so 2.6 yd³, and dry gravel is about 1.3 ton/yd³, so about 3.3 tons.

2 inches / 12 = 0.1667 feet

10200 square feet * 0.1667 feet = 1700.34 cubic feet

If you can find the crushed stone in cubic feet, you're all set. To purchase by the ton you'd need to know the density which differs by the type and size of the stone.

you can calculate volume using one of the following formulas:

Volume = length * width * height
volume = area * height

though both need to be in the same base unit, so convert inches to feet first.

1134 square feet * (4 inches / 12) feet = 378 cubic feet

now to convert volume such as cubic feet to weight such as tons, it depends on the density of the substance. If you let me know the substance i may be able to look up the density.

For example, sand would have a different conversion than gravel.

pea gravel 350 sq ft = ? Tons

A simple way to convert from square yards to tons of asphalt is to know that one square yard ( 3 feet x 3 feet ) of asphalt compacted to 1 inch thick will weigh 110 pounds. Two inches thick will weigh 220 pounds and three inches thick will weigh 330 pounds and so on. So if your driveway was 10feet wide and 205 feet long and you wanted 2 inch thick asphalt this is how you figure the tons need:

(10ft x205ft)/9sqft/sqyd= 228 square yards

228 sq yds x 220 pounds x 1ton/2000pound = 25.08 Tons of asphalt

(Does not change for the different mixes, the equation is the same)

or simplify = 0.0061 x ( thickness of asphalt in inches) x square feet = Tons of asphalt

This is compacted weight, so remember in order to end up with 1 inch thick asphalt you have to lay down 1.25 inches then compact. For 2 inches you lay down 2.5 inches then compact. So basically you add .25 inches for inch inch of thickness.

Loose sand (as delivered) around 100 lb/ft³ so 30000 lb or 15 tons.
If you need to fill a 300 ft³ hole, note that it will compact down, and you should allow an extra 15-20% for compaction.

Aren't you metric in India?? You have about 4000m², and you want to increase the depth by 0.3m. So 0.3 x 4000 = 1200cubic meters. If the desity of the compacted soil you are using is about 1.8, you will need about 1.8 x 1200 = ~ 2200 tonnes.

Crushed asphalt is 45 pounds/cubic foot

378 cubic foot * 45 pounds/cubic foot = 17010 pounds

17010 pounds / 2000 = 8.5 tons

You are right about the way you told me how you figure out concrete on the concrete calculator on my thread but you dont figure asphalt the same like you did with this asphalt question below.

I think you are wrong 18' x 63' x 4" is not 8.2 tons it is more like 28
Here i did it my way and also did it on a asphalt web site on there calculator that is shown below

Length (feet) 63
Width (feet) 18
Thickness (inches) 4

14000cy
378.00 c ft
56700 lb
Hot Mix Ton(s) Required 28.35

Just so no-one gets confused. :)

63 x 18 x (4/12) = 378 cubic feet.

378/27 = 14 cubic yards.

Why did you us 27 that is for concrete asphalt is either / by 9 or / by 160 for tons

There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

Well before i posted it again i called a asphalt place and they said for the messurments i gave them 18' X 63' x 4" and they said i would need 28.5 tons this would leave me with a little extra so your answer of 8.5 ton is wrong by 20 ton!!

Hi Eugene, the link above would more or less agree with you, maybe hot mix is different from crushed. Anyway, they give the calculation on the page. :)

how many tons of 2 b stone would it take to fill an area at 17 feet wide times 71 feet long times 10 inches deep?

You need to fill 17 ft x 71 ft x (10/12) ft = 1006 ft³. The rock is delivered loose and will compact somewhat. I'd allow an extra 15%, 1157 ft³.

At 27 ft³/yd³, this is about 43 yd³, and weight about 1.3 ton/yd³, assuming it is dry. Thus about 56 tons.

Don't know what m.o.t is
4" is about 0.1 m, so you need 3.5 m³
Broken limestone is about 1.6 t/m³, so for it or any broken/crushed rock, about 5.6 t

For pavement, either asphalt or concrete, about 2.4 t/m³ or 8.4 t.

Asphalt Conversion SF X Depth X 12.5 ? 2000 will give you the tonnage needed for your area. I have been doing asphalt all my life. This is hoe its done

Limestone is about 1.3 ton/yd³
13500 ft³ x 1 yd³/27 ft³ x 1.3 ton/yd = 650 tons

how do i take the pipe out for the amount of stone needed. what is the formula? so lets say i have a trench 29 feetlong 4 foot wide 6.5 deep with 6"pipe how do i figure this out

Ignoring the pipe, you need 754 ft³ which you can then convert to cubic yards or tons. As it is delivered loose, you may want to add 10% for how it will compact when tamped.

The pipe is so small compared to the hole it will be within the margin of error of how the stone packs down. However it is the volume of a cylinder.
(pi/4)*D*D*L where D is the external diameter in feet, 0.5 ft, and L is the length 29 ft.

Volume to subtract is 0.785 x 0.5 x 0.5 x 29 = 5.7 ft³.

When the pipe diameter is closer to the width of the trench, it can be an important correction.
