Calc tons, yd3, ft3 and m3 from dimensions, thickness, wastage % and density. Over 15 types of rock, sand, dirt, mulch and gravel.
Calc tons, y3, m3 and ft3 from diameter, thickness, wastage %, density and # of areas.
Calc tons needed from dimensions and base weight.
Calc # of bricks or blocks needed from structure length and height, mortar joints, wastage % and brick sizes.
Calc yd3, m3, ft3, premixed or portland bags and feet of rebar from width, length and thickness and rebar spacing.
=Concrete Round/Post Holes
Calc yd3, ft3, m3, area, premixed bags and portland bags from dimensions, post size and number of columns.
Calc peak discharge from runoff coefficient, rainfall intensity and drainage area.
*experimental* Calculate the distance between two points by using the GPS in your device. Only useful for large distances where the normal errors in the accuracy of GPS won’t have a big impact.
