CATCHMENT MORPHOLOGY

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of catchments for each investigation
  • Description of each catchment through an unrestricted number of level curves, sub-catchment areas, flow lengths and slopes
  • Computation of hypsometric curves and flow profiles
  • Computation of average, minimum and maximum slopes
  • Computation of times of concentration according to different authors (Giandotti, Kirpich, Viparelli, etc.)
  • Comparison of results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES
