# Stockpile Volume Measurement

## Stockpile Volume Measurement

In construction field stockpile volume measurement is monthly work program.Today we are going to share how to measure stockpile volume.We can calculate volume of stockpile in manually or by software. To calculate the volume of stockpile in manual no need any software , we can calculate by Microsoft excel and Autocad. To calculate the volume of stockpile by software, we are use Surfer , Trimble Terramodel , Kubla Cubed. All mention software are paid version but you can get crack version in torrent website and many others crack website.We , the public n engineers team are not recommended you to use crack version software.Stockpile Volume Measurement |

### Manual Stockpile Volume Measurement

After complete stock pile survey, process this data and save output file in .csv and autocad format. To calculate manually we need the bottom area of the stock pile, average bottom level of the stock pile , top area of the stock pile and average top level of the stock pile. First calculate the average height of stockpile by formula of

**"**.Next calculate the average area of stockpile by the formula of__average bottom level of the stock pile minus(-) average top level of the stock pile__"**"**. Finally calculate the volume of stockpile by the formula of__Average=[bottom area of the stockpile plus(+) top area of the stockpile]__"**"**.__average height of stockpile (x) average area of stockpile__"
This is not a actual volume measurement process,for calculate a lump sum volume of stockpile we can use this process but when we go for accurate volume we need to process in software.

### Stockpile Volume Measurement By Software (Surfer)

Stockpile Volume Measurement |

First import the co-ordinate/file open the surfer => Grid data (select the file and load it through triangulation method, triangulation method is the best method within surfer)

Create a surface 3d map by the grid data file.

Next go grid option => Volume => Select that grid file as upper surface => Select grid file as upper surface (if any . otherwise ignore it) or you can input the lower surface Z value => Select a polygon boundary file (optional / if any) => finally click OK. A grid volume computations sheet will generate. We physically check the volume and get satisfy.
