In Snyder's book, "Map Projections: A Working Manual", the symbol k stands for the local scale factor, and you can find formulas for k for an ellipsoid-based LCC projection at the top of page 108.
It may be possible to compute k with Proj.4, but I don't know how to do that.

I'm interested in finding the relationship between scale factors of LCC maps
(aviation) that are designed so they can be put next to each other and therefore
have a different scale factor each.
The maps cover parts of Europe with standard parallels at 40°N and 52°N. The
scale factor differs slightly and I am interested in a formula to calculate it.
I have found this in a forum message from 2007:
"Find a chart that gives the true scale at 54ºN and divide that into 500,000.
This is the scale factor. For 51N the scale factor is 500/515=0.9709, = 1/1.03
Running Hooijberg's algorith for LCC, 2 parallels, the scale factor at
Unfortunately a search for Hooijberg's algorithm was not successful. Any
