Mixture designs for $$q$$ components in orthogonal blocks. (English) Zbl 0812.62083
Summary: In industrial experimentation designs are needed to estimate the effects of mixture components independently of process variables. This paper gives general methods of constructing designs for $$q\geq 3$$ mixture components in two or more orthogonal blocks. The designs are built from Latin squares with specific properties and are generalizations of those for four and five components given by N. Draper and co-workers [Technometrics 35, 268-276 (1993)] and P. Prescott and co-workers [J. Appl. Stat. 20, 105-117 (1993)], respectively.
