A Catalog of Orthogonally Blocked Three-Level Second-Order Designs With Run Sizes ≤ 100

Box-Behnken designs form a very popular class of three-level second-order designs when the number of factors is small, typically seven or less. For larger number of factors these designs are not as popular because then these designs require a large number of runs. This article provides a catalog of three-level second-order designs for 5–11 factors with run sizes ≤ 100. All the designs reported can be orthogonally blocked and are seen to have high D-efficiencies.
