A berm is a flat strip of land, raised bank, or terrace bordering a river or canal. Do you want to calculate the volume of a berm for your for construction and landscaping projects? The Berm Volume Calculator can make this process easy.
For calculation enter berm base (in), height (in), length (in) as input into the calculator, It will display berm volume. For advance level calculation enter slope (in/in) along with berm base, height into the calculator, it will display berm volume with slope.
What Is Berm Volume?
How to Use Calculator

Basic Calculator:
 Input any two values (base, height, or length).
 The calculator will compute the missing value.

Advanced Calculator:
 Input values for base, height, length, and slope.
 The calculator will determine the berm volume considering the slope.
How to Calculate Berm Volume
Formula:
$\text{BV} = \frac{1}{2} \times B \times H \times L$
BV  Berm Volume (in³) 
B  Berm base (in) 
H  Height (in) 
L  Length (in) 
Example Calculations
1. Basic Example
Berm Base (in)  Height (in)  Length (in)  Berm Volume (in³) 

10  5  20  500 
Given:
 Base = 10 in
 Height = 5 in
 Length = 20 in
Using the formula:
$\text{BV} = \frac{1}{2} \times 10 \times 5 \times 20 = 500 \text{ in}^3$
2. Advanced Example
Berm Base (in)  Height (in)  Length (in)  Slope (in/in)  Berm Volume with Slope (in³) 

10  5  20  2  1500 
Given:
 Base = 10 in
 Height = 5 in
 Length = 20 in
 Slope = 2 in/in
Using the formula:
$\text{Effective Base} = \text{Base} + 2 \times \text{Height} \times \text{Slope}$
$\text{Effective Base} = 10 + 2 \times 5 \times 2 = 30$
$\text{BV with Slope} = \frac{1}{2} \times 30 \times 5 \times 20 = 1500 \text{ in}^3$
FAQs
What is a berm?
A berm is a raised barrier or bank of earth, often used for defense, landscaping, or erosion control.
Why use a berm volume calculator?
It gives precise measurements needed for construction and landscaping, ensuring the right amount of material is used.
Is it possible to deal with irregular berm shapes?
The calculator expects a simple triangular crosssection. More complex calculations are needed for irregular shapes.
