This tool helps you calculate the amount of concrete needed for your slab project in cubic yards.

## How to Use the Concrete Slab Calculator

To use this calculator, please follow these steps:

- Enter the length of the slab in feet.
- Enter the width of the slab in feet.
- Enter the thickness of the slab in inches.
- Click the “Calculate” button.

The results will display the total volume in both cubic feet and cubic yards.

## How the Calculator Works

This calculator takes three input parameters: length, width, and thickness. All parameters are required and must be positive numbers.

The volume in cubic feet is calculated using the formula:

length × width × (thickness ÷ 12)

To convert cubic feet to cubic yards, the result in cubic feet is divided by 27.

The results are presented as a table showing both cubic feet and cubic yards measurements.

## Limitations

This calculator is designed for standard rectangular slabs only. It assumes an even thickness throughout the slab and does not account for minor variations in concrete thickness or other potential complexities in slab design. Ensure all measurements are accurate for the best results.
