The design of experiments involving more than one blocking factor and quantitative explanatory variables is discussed, the focus being on two key aspects of blocked response surface designs: optimality and orthogonality. First, conditions for orthogonally blocked experiments are derived. Next, an algorithmic approach to compute D-optimal designs is presented. Finally, the relationships between design optimality and orthogonality in the context of response surface experiments are discussed in detail.
