NOTE:  k values shown are typical for materials having dry densities
equal to 90 to 95 percent of the maximum CE 55 density. For materials
having dry densities less than 90 percent of maximum CE 55 density,
values should be reduced by 50 lb/in3, except that a k of 25 lb/in3 will
be the minimum used for design.
