Doehlert Design for Wet Pelletization

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Consider the experimental design problem in which there are three factors: (1) impeller speed (in rpm) with associated variable , such that the lower and upper levels are 250 and 400, respectively, (2) amount of binding solution (in %) with associated variable , such that the lower and upper levels are 60 and 70, respectively, (3) pelletization time (in min) with associated variable , such that the lower and upper levels are 5 and 20, respectively.

Pelletization experiments using Doehlert design scheme determine one parameter: the mean pellet size (in mm).

This Demonstration computes the quadratic model by multilinear regression; the response versus , , and is given by:

You can set the value of one of the variables (say ) and the Demonstration will display the contour plot of the response versus the other two variables (and ).
