Always start with ~_ closest initial approximation, then "correct" as necessary. Examples: 1. Rigid Rectangle, deep clay layer, find Pi under a corner (Case I: PI = CsqB 1_: 2 ) But Table P1 has no rigid rectangle, so use Cs for flexible rectangle and "correct" using rigid vs. flexible square Cs factors. =-_--oo::::::s:::: "correction factor" 2.
