The purpose of mixture experiments is to explore the optimum blends of mixture components, which will provide desirable response characteristics in finished products. D-optimal minimal designs have been considered for a variety of mixture models, including Scheffé's linear, quadratic, and cubic models. Usually, these D-optimal designs are minimally supported since they have just as many design points as the number of parameters. Thus, they lack the degrees of freedom to perform the Lack of Fit tests. Also, the majority of the design points in D-optimal minimal designs are on the boundary: vertices, edges, or faces of the design simplex.
IN THIS PAPER EXTENSIONS OF THE D-OPTIMAL MINIMAL DESIGNS ARE DEVELOPED FOR A GENERAL MIXTURE MODEL TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL INTERIOR POINTS IN THE DESIGN SPACE TO ENABLE PREDICTION OF THE ENTIRE RESPONSE SURFACE: Also a new strategy for adding multiple interior points for symmetric mixture models is proposed. We compare the proposed designs with Cornell (1986) two ten-point designs for the Lack of Fit test by simulations.
