Resolvable Incomplete Split-Plot × Split-Block Designs

The aim of the paper is to present a randomization model, statistical properties and their consequences for an analysis of some three factor experiments set up in resolvable split-plot × splitblock designs. To control several sources of local variation, nested blocking structure is applied. The designs considered are incomplete with respect to all the factors which levels are arranged in resolvable block designs.
