A gravel pile in my driveway 2009-05-13
From Dean:
The only place I have to deliver gravel is in my driveway. The driveway is 16 ft wide by 18 ft long. How much gravel can I order as to not exceed the boundaries of my driveway when the truck dumps the gravel onto my driveway? I am assuming the angle of repose comes into play when calculating this elliptical pile? The maximum amount of gravel I need is 12 cubic yards.

The amount of gravel needed to fill a hole 2001-10-06
From Rhett:
My name is Rhett and my problem is...I am a contractor and I am having problems determining the amount of gravel(in tonnage) needed to fill this hole,the measurements are 60' in length,22' in width,and 14' in height....the problem is that it is not a usual box shaped hole or in this case a rectangle shaped hole,but more of a triangular shaped hole.I refer to the triangular shape as the interior shape of the crater not the exterior,which is shaped like the above dimensions.If you could help it would be greatly appreciated.P.s.This was a retaining wall project,built by myself, in front of a sloped end of a yard,so if you could imagine a 14" high hill with a landslide looking face,then build in your mind a three sided rectangle in front of it using the hill side that slopes as the fourth side of the rectangle,then you may be able to imagine what I mean as a triangular shaped interior of the hole.
