The current wording in section 9 refers to Table 2 for the stranding k-factor. Table 2 is actually the temperature correction factors for resistance. Revise to use 2 % as the incremental increase in mass and resistance due to stranding. The 2% incremental increase also aligns with similar standards such as B496 and B400.
