I primarily utilize ACAD Civil 3D for my work. Just starting to break into the civil / environmental engineering field and want to know how I can calculate the square footage of a final cover that our firm wants to place on an existing landfill that is full. I can use ACAD to calculate the total volume of the landfill area, but not sure about using it to calculate SF on final cover. If it is a soil or clay cap would it not be in cubic feet in lieu of square feet?
New to all of this ~ can anyone give any suggestions or advice?
