Abstract

The equiradial designs are studied as alternative second-order N-point spherical Response Surface Methodology designs in two variables, for design radius ρ = 1.0. These designs are seen comparable with the standard second-order response surface methodology designs, namely the Central Composite Designs. The D-efficiencies of the equiradial designs are evaluated with respect to the spherical Central Composite Designs. Furthermore, D-efficiencies of the equiradial designs are evaluated with respect to the D-optimal exact designs defined on the design regions of the Circumscribed Central Composite Design, the Inscribed Central Composite Design and the Face-centered Central Composite Design. The D-efficiency values reveal that the alternative second-order N-point spherical equiradial designs are better than the Inscribed Central Composite Design though inferior to the Circumscribed Central Composite Design with efficiency values less than 50% in all cases studied. Also, D-efficiency values reveal that the alternative second-order N-point spherical equiradial designs are better than the N-point D-optimal exact designs defined on the design region supported by the design points of the Inscribed Central Composite Design. However, the N-point spherical equiradial designs are inferior to the N-point D-optimal exact designs defined on the design region supported by the design points of the Circumscribed Central Composite Design and those of the Face-centered Central Composite Design, with worse cases with respect to the design region of the Circumscribed Central Composite Design.
