prismoidal formula

Formula untuk volume prismoid. A rumus khas, digunakan untuk menghitung volume dipotong
atau mengisi yang berbentuk seperti prismoid, adalah V = L (A + 4B + C) / 6, di mana V adalah
volume, A dan C adalah area cross sectional ujung, B adalah luas penampang silang di tengah
dipotong atau mengisi, dan L adalah panjang sebagian seragam meruncing dipotong atau
mengisi. Formula yang digunakan, misalnya, dalam penilaian jalur rel kereta api atau jalan Raya.


Area by Coordinates
Area = [XA(YB - YN) + XB(YC - YA) + XC(YD - YB) + ...+ XN(YA - YN-

Trapezoidal Rule
Area = w[(h1 + hn)/2 + h2 + h3 + h4 + .... + hn-1]
w = common interval length

Simpson's 1/3 Rule

w = common interval length

n must be odd number of measurements

Average End Area
V = L(A1 + A2)/2
A = section area
L = length between areas 1 and 2
V = volume

Prismoidal Formula
V = L(A1 + 4Am + A2)/6
Am = area at mid section
see Prismoid in Measuration Equations
Pyramid or Cone
V = h(area of base)/3
h = cone height
Volume Calculation for Areas Found Using Section Method

Volume Calculation for Areas found using Section Method

Once the section wise area calculation is done using section method, any of the 3 Volume calculation
methods can be used for Volume Calculation

1. Average End Area Method

2. Prismoidal Rule
3. Simpsons 1/3rd Rule

Average End Area Volume Calculation (Trapezoidal Method)

The formula for calculation of volume by average end area:

Volume = L x 1/2 (A1 + A2) cubic meter

L Distance in meters A1 and A2 area in Square meters

The average end area calculation is used to calculate volume between two cross sections i.e., Two cross
sectional areas are averaged and multiplied by the length (distance) between two cross sections to get
the volume.
If there are a series of areas A1, A2, A3,.An at regular interval L, V=L/2[(A1+An)+2A2+A3+..+An-1)]

Prismoidal Formula

Prismoidal formula is accurate in finding the volume of prisms, pyramids, wedges, and prismoids having
irregular end sections. The estimation of earthwork gives nearly an accurate volume.
The formula given is V=d/3[Sum of areas of end two sections+ 4(sum of the even sections) +2(sum of the
remaining sections)]

Example 7:
In this example, we have found out the area of cutting and filling for all the 6 Sections using Trapezoidal
Method at formation level 20.

The area calculation details are as below:

Sl. Section Cutting Filling

No. No. Area Area
1 729 1.85 2.45

2 732 17.10

3 735 78.90

4 738 20.85
5 741 72.00

6 744 14.70

Total 1.85 206.00

Volume calculations for rectangular prism and pyramid are shown below:

A truncated pyramid is a pyramid

which top has been cut off.

If the A1+A2 is almost equal in size

then the following formula can be used

V = h (A1 + A2) / 2

A prismoid is as a solid whose end

faces lie in parallel planes and consist
of any two polygons, not necessarily
of the same number of sides as shown
opposite, the longitudinal faces may
take the form of triangles,
parallelograms, or trapeziums.
Area calculations refer usually to rectangular and triangular shapes. If you need the trigonometric
function for calculations click here.

There are different ways to calculate the area of

the opposite figure. Try to minimise the amount
of calculation. The figure could be divided in
three distinct areas
or the whole rectangle minus the hole (d)
A =16.67x10.31-6.25x4.55.

As you can see the 2nd method is easier. Look

at the shape and try to shorten the calculations.

If you know only the sides of a triangle then use the formula given in the figure below.

An area can usually be divided it in

triangles (rectangles, parallelograms,
trapeziums etc).

Parallelograms has opposite sides

parallel and equal. Diagonals bisect
the figure and opposite angles are

The trapezium has one pair of

opposite sides parallel.
(A regular trapezium is symmetrical about
the perpendicular bisector of the parallel
An arc is a part of the circumference of a circle; a part proportional to the central angle.
If 360 corresponds to the full circumference. i.e. 2 r then for a central angle of (see opposite
figure) the corresponding arc length will be b = /180 x r .
