volume of elongated or tent-shaped
stockpiles

Determining the volume of an elongated stockpile becomes


readily apparent by separating the pile into its two basic forms,
a conical pile and a prism-shaped pile. (See Figure 2.) From the
chart on the previous page, find the volume and dimensions of
the conical pile which is equivalent to the two ends, and to this
add the volume of the prism-shaped center section.
EXAMPLE
An area 120' wide and 415' long is available for an elongated
stockpile. What volume can be stockpiled if the material has a
37° angle of repose?
1. From the chart, we find the conical pile in the
preceding example is equivalent to the ends of this
tent-shaped pile and, therefore, the volume is
6224 yds3.
2. Subtract width of the conical pile from overall pile
length to determine the length of prism-shaped
section. 402
- 120
= 300

3. Find the volume of prism by:


W= Lengthxwidthxhight = 300 ft.x120 ft.45ft. =720,000 ft3
2 2
4. Since there are 27 ft3 per yd3, divide:
720,000 ft3 = 26,677yd3 (Prism Volume)
27 ft3/yd3
5. Add the volume of ends and prism:
26,667 yd3
6,224
= 32,891 yds3 (Total Volume)

To determine the total volume of a kidney shaped stockpile, utilize the following formula:
V = Volume in Yds. or Tons = (V1 × D) + V2
Example: 30' High Pile, 120' Radius, 90° Arc
V1 = Volume in 1° of Arc
V = (92.62 × 90) + 1844 = 10,179.8 yd3

163
D = Degrees of Arc
Also V = (125.04 × 90) + 2489 = 13,742.6 Tons
V2 = Volume of Ends (See Conical Stockpile Chart)
