Table 5.4: Curve Number Values
Area 1 Area 2 Area 3
Figure 5.2 shows that for the areas analyzed, there is a general trend for both longest flow path (LFP) and slope. The trend in variations in slope reflects the trend in variations in longest flow path, as it is calculated from the longest flow path measurement. Both show higher variations with Area 1 and lower variations for Area 3. Another key point shown by Figure 5.2 is that for the small area (Area 1), there is more variation among parameters than for the larger area, Area 3, except in the case of perimeter and curve number.
In this study “elasticity” is used as a measure of the influence of one
variables, it is a unit-dependent quantity. Elasticity, on the other hand, is a
dimensionless quantity. In simple terms, elasticity is the percent change in output
per percent change in input. If the elasticity is greater than one, the parameter is
“elastic” in that the dependent variable is more sensitive to the independent
