Abstract

This paper presents comprehensive discussions about how to use statistical design of experiment in civil engineering based experimental works. Appropriate available literatures in related area were cited and also theoretical frameworks. The paper was then enriched with a case study of
implementing statistical design of experiment in civil engineering field. The discussedtopic was about the development of composite hybrid sandwich panel that incorporating intermediate layer. The experiment was designed as a single factor experimental design. A significance analysis had been conducted to the data of ultimate load provided from flexural test. It was found that the incorporation of intermediate layer has significantly enhanced the load carrying capacity of sandwich panels. Overall, the statistical design of experiment employed in this study has demonstrated its ability in drawing inferential results of an experimental work in civil engineering field.
