** Irregular shape (silo) volume calculator** - step by step calculation, formula & solved example problem to find the total volume for the given values of base radius r & height h of silo in different measurement units between inches (in), feet (ft), meters (m), centimeters (cm) & millimeters (mm). Silo is a tall cylindrical structure, used for storing grain or bulk materials. It's relatively a cylindrical shape with a half-dome on the top, therefore, using formulas of both

The following mathematical formula is used in this this calculator to find the total volume of irregular shape (cylindrical silo) for the given input value of base radius r & height h

The below solved example problem may be useful to understand how the values are being used in the mathematical formulas to find the silo (irregular shape) volume.

**Example Problem :**

Find the total volume of silo having the radius r = 27 cm & height h = 45 cm?

**Solution :**

The given values

radius r = 27 cm

height h = 45 cm

**Step by step calculation**

formula to find volume = πr^{2}h + 2πr^{3}/3

from the above formula

**πr ^{2}h** is cylinder volume formula

substitute the values

= (π x 27

=

The total volume of a silo may required to be calculated in SI or metric or US customary unit systems, therefore this cylindrical silo volume calculator is featured with major measurement units conversion function to find the output values in different customary units such as inches (in), feet (ft), meters (m), centimeters (cm) & millimeters (mm) by using this below conversion table.

10 mm = 1 cm 100 mm = 3.93 in 1000 mm = 3.28 ft 1000 mm = 1 m |
1 cm = 10 mm 10 cm = 3.93 in 100 cm = 3.28 ft 100 cm = 1 m |
1 ft = 3048 mm 1 ft = 304.8 cm 1 ft = 12 in 10 ft = 3.048 m |
1 in = 25.4 mm 1 in = 2.54 cm 100 in = 8.33 ft 100 in = 2.54 m |
