Loose crushed stone is compacted about 40 percent when rolled

Apr 22, 2021

You can specify a compacted/finished material depth or a loose/tailgated depth when entering the dimensions. However, the estimates generated will always appear as cubic yards of loose material and US tons as-shipped (loose). A cost estimate can be generated by providing a known price per ton in your region or from a particular supplier

    Assume you are using dry gravel with a swell percentage of 15% and a shrink percentage of -7%. Plug those values into the calculator and it will tell you that the compaction factor = 1.237. Multiply the 1185 cubic yards by 1.237. 1185 * 1.237 = 1465.9. To complete this job you will need 1465.9 cubic yards of this gravel in loose state volume
