The geometric mean radius factor depends on the construction of the conductor, the number of stranded wires and the compaction of the strand.

The IEC 60287-1-3 Ed.1.0 Table 1 lists values factor K

• Values in the standard are for 1 (solid), 3, 7, 19, 37, 61, 91, and 127 number of wires, the other values are interpolated.
• The given values are applicable to non-compacted circular conductors.
• For compacted conductors the value for solid conductor should be used.
• Values for hollow conductors are dependant on the inner and outer diameter of the conductor as by example in annex B of the the IEC standard.
• No information was given for shaped conductors, the same values are taken as for non-compacted circular conductors.
