Abstract:

This article is concerned with the analysis of experiments arranged in blocks chosen at random. Estimates of the polynomial parameters in the associated response surface model are obtained free of blocks. Tests concerning the polynomial and random block effects are presented. Furthermore, the power of the test for the block effect is obtained using a certain approximation by Hirotsu 1979. A numerical example is given to illustrate the implementation of the proposed analysis. Keywords Design moments Fixed and random effects Mixed model Orthogonal blocking Polynomial and block effects Response surface model.
