How to calculate wood beam size: At first you have to collect a wood beam.
Tools and other equipment: Tape, calculator machine, paper, pen or pencil, rubber, etc.
- Take a wood beam.
- The length, width, thickness, or height of the beam should be measured and written on paper. Then according to the formula, the size of wood beam= length X width X thickness or height has to be found.
How to calculate wood beam size
Suppose the length of a beam = 6 feet, width = 6 inches, thickness or height = 6 inches.
According to the formula: The size of wood beam = length X width X thickness or height.
= 8’-0” X 8” X 6”
= 8’-0” X 8”/12 X 6”/12
= 8’ X 0.67’ X 0.50’
= 2.68 cubic feet
Result: We’ll get 2.68 cubic feet wood from the beam
