Efficient Minimal Circular Strongly Partially Balanced RMDs in Periods of Two Different Sizes
Keywords:RMDs, circular weakly balanced RMDs, residual effects
Balanced or strongly balanced repeated measurements designs (RMDs) are used to balance out residual effects. Minimal strongly balanced RMD (SBRMDs) are important to estimate the direct effects and residual effects independently at low cost but there are many situations where SBRMDs cannot be constructed. In such situations, strongly partially balanced RMDs (SPBRMDs) are preferred. In literature, these designs are not available for odd (larger period size). In this paper, minimal circular SPBRMDs are constructed in periods of two different sizes for almost every case of (odd).
