**Calculating Gross Volume and Net Volume for a Paraboloid Wood Waste Pile**

The shape of the pile plays a significant role in estimating the size of a wood waste pile. The most common form for wood waste piles is the paraboloid shape. Their volume can be determined using just a few measurements (Elvis 2019, 2019). The gross pile volume is calculated by adding these attributes to a pile with a length 10.5m, width 7.7m and height 6.2m (V1). A 20% packing ratio will give you 80% net pile volume. In this case, the total gross pile volume for the paraboloid-shaped wooden waste pile is 537.77 cubic metres (V1) and 429.22 cubic metres (V2) (Elvis 2019). It is easy to determine the volume for a paraboloid-shaped pile of wood waste. However, you need to consider its packing ratio. Because the pack ratio influences the pile’s volume (the volume that has wood waste actually in it),
