If you are now going 24” instead of 15”, with the post sitting on the bottom of the hole, the volume will increase to 0.66 cubic feet which will require ~1.5 60 lb. bags of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix per hole. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc. The calculation is as follows: Volume of the hole is equal to: π * radius of hole squared * height (π*4.5”*4.5”*24”~1527 cubic inches), Volume of the post is width*length*height (4”*4”*24”~384 cubic inches), subtract those two and you get 1143 cubic inches which is 0.66 cubic feet.

A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. A 9 in. Diameter x 15” deep hole that has a 4”x 4” post in it going the full depth will require approximately 0.41 cubic feet of concrete, or approximately 1 60 lb. bags of Concrete Mix per hole. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

Calculate the volume in cubic in.
I got about 954 cubic inches per hole, minus the volume of the post, equals 746 cubic inches
You didn't say how deep you were putting in the posts, I'll assume 2" off the bottom to prevent the wood from sitting in dirt which would allow it to rot faster.
Each hole will require 0.431 cubic foot of concrete, or 58 lb.
So, a bag per hole should work fine.
Soak the post ends in water overnight before putting them in the concrete, otherwise they will absorb water once they are in the hole and expand while the concrete is setting.

Sorry I did not check my email sooner

According to the math you need 28 - 60 lb bags of concrete mix.
3.14 (PI) * 1 foot (squared) * 4 feet = 12.57 cubic feet
Each bag makes .45 Cubic feet of cement so you need 28 bags.

If your pole is 6" in diameter you can drop that number to 22 bags.

When placing fence posts, the depth of the post hole should be one-half of the above-ground post height, for example: For a 4' above ground post, use a post with an overall height of 6 feet and place 2 feet (24”) in the ground. For holes that are 24” deep, with a 12” diameter, and a 4” x 4” square post placed within, a single hole would require approximately three 60# bags of mixed QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. 8 posts will require approximately 24 bags. These are estimates and will vary based upon waste, uneven subgrade, etc. Note that the QUIKRETE Concrete Mix must be blended with water before being added to the hole.

If you're setting 4x4 posts, you're gonna want to dig your holes deeper than 1 foot. The Quikrete folks will tell you to dig a hole half as deep as the height of your post out of the ground. (e.g., for a 6 foot high post you would need a 9 foot long 4x4 with 3 feet of it being buried in the hole). While that will certainly be sturdy, I would go with 8 foot posts and bury them in 2 foot holes. Having said that, a 60lb. bag would do one hole and then some - maybe 3 bags for 4 holes - assuming the holes are about 9-10 inches in diameter. The Quikrete website has a good quantity calculator on it. Good luck.

Your question is very vague. You can pour concrete on top of particle board, but why?
If it is a form, make sure it is properly supported. If you are making a concrete kitchen counter top, I recommend a book on concrete kitchen counter tops, You will have to search for it, but it has some very good information about pouring your own. Hope this helped.

QUIKRETE Concrete Mix may be applied over plywood if a metal lath is first installed to allow a mechanical bond to form, as the Concrete Mix could not bond directly to the plywood. QUIKRETE Concrete Mix should NOT be applied over particle board as the particle board may swell, deform, and lose strength if exposed to high levels of moisture. Concrete will also not form a bond with particle board. Depending upon the ultimate surface you wish to have for the counter top, installation of a cementitious backerboard over the particle board may allow greater flexibility in regards to the final surface you can apply. Note that it is not advisable to drive nails or screws into particle board, as they can provide an inlet for moisture, and / or cause the particle board to lose its shape when indentations are made on its surface. The use of QUIKRETE Polyurethane Construction Adhesive to adhere cementitious backerboard to the particleboard may be an option. You may wish to obtain further technical support directly from QUIKRETE at 1-800-282-5828.

If the question is "Can I use particle board as a temporary form for concrete" the answer is yes.
If the question is "Can I pour this type of concrete on top of particle board" the answer is no.

There is a lot of moisture in the concrete mix and if it is under the concrete the moisture and the weight of the concrete could weaken the particle board to the point of failure.

Using the particleboard a temporary form for curves etc can work if it is properly braced.

That would be 8 cubic feet. From what I see Portland cement weighs about 145l/ft3. I would verify that number as it varies due to mixture aggregate, dry and chemical mixtures and the like. The density is variable due to the amount of water and air trapped inside. This is by design. I would say you need ABOUT 19 60# bags. 19.3 using 145lbs as reference.

Need more information. Is the fire pit round, square or other?
Here's the calculation, figure out the cubic feet.
Concrete weighs 135lb per cubic foot, so calculate the weight you will need.
Divide the total weight of your slab by the weight of each bag.
Or, just take the cubic feet and multiply by 2.25 for the number of bags.

Each bag is approximately .5 Cubic Feet

The math goes

14 feet X 14 feet = 196 square feet
196 square feet / 3 = 66 cubic feet (Note: Divide by 3 accounts for the 4 inch thickness)
66 cubic feet * 2 bags/ cubic foot = 132 bags

132 Bags - Note I did not account for the fire pit and I would recommend that you don't either. This gives you a few extra bags to allow for errors (dropped bags, uneven base, stuff on your shoes and clothing) and any left overs you can take back to the nice folks at Home Depot.

A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. A pour that is 0.34 feet (4 inches) x 0.75 feet (9 inches) x 12 feet (144 inches) will require approximately 3 cubic feet of concrete, or approximately seven 60 lb bags of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. Yields are approximate, and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

That's 5184 cubic inches or 3 cubic feet. Each cubic foot of concrete weighs 135lb, so you need 405lb of concrete. 60lb per bag, better buy 7 or 8. Home Depot is good about returns and you wouldn't want to run out if your depth varies.

QUIKRETE Concrete Mix is not intended to be used for purposes other than as a blended concrete. If stacked bags of product are needed for an erosion control or similar project, please utilize QUIKRETE Rip Rap which is designed specifically for this purpose. See www.quikrete.com for project advice. Concrete Mix bags will not cure properly in stacks. A 60 lb bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix as stacked on the pallet is approximately 12 ¾ x 17 ¾ x 4 ½ inches. This will vary regionally based upon raw materials, as well as the amount of handling an individual bag has incurred.

That's 4.5 cubic feet. You need 135lb of concrete mix for every cubic foot. You need 607.5lb of concrete, or just over 10 bags. Buy 11 and if you don't use the last one, return it. You don't want to run out.

A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. For a 9 square foot area that is 6 inches (0.5 feet) deep, approximately 9 x 0.5 = 4.5 cubic feet of concrete or 10 60 lb. bags of concrete will be required. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

Hi Concreteready, I used the Quikrete calculator. The calculator shows you will need 10 bags of 60 pound quikrete.

Hope that answered your question.
