KASCADE (KArlsruhe Shower Core and Array DEtector) is a multidetector setup to observe the electromagnetic, muonic and hadronic air shower components simultaneously for the primary energy region around the knee. The large body of observables per single shower allows to follow the main aims of the experiment in analyses on an event-by-event basis, mainly: 1) slopes and structures of the primary energy spectrum; 2) the energy dependence of the chemical composition of the primaries; 3) tests of the air shower simulation tools underlying the analyses, in particular of the Monte Carlo generators based on different high-energy interaction models; 4) examinations of the air shower development in the atmosphere. Examples and results of different analysis methods are presented for the different subjects.
