to figure out how much concrete that you need just measure how many lineal feet of footing you have. then take the depth times the width times the length. divide that by 27 and there is your approximate yardage

Make sure that you have all of your dimensions in FEET when dividing by 27. For example, if your footings are 8" thick, this is equal to .667'. You will grossly overestimate the amount of concrete needed if you dont measure correctly. Also, are you forming your footings, or pouring into trenches. If using trenches, add about 10% to whatever you calculate. I have a crude concrete calculator that I built in Excel 97. Email me if you would like a copy. It will accept mixed measurements(feet and inches).
