Description

Heat evolved during setting of 13 cement mixtures of four basic ingredients. Each ingredient percentage appears to be rounded down to a full integer. The sum of the four mixture percentages varies from a maximum of 99% to a minimum of 95%. If all four regressor X-variables always summed to 100%, the centered X-matrix would then be of rank only 3. Thus, the regression of heat on four X-percentages is ill-conditioned, with an approximate rank deficiency of MCAL = 1.

Usage

Format

A data frame with 13 observations on the following 5 variables.

X1

p3ca: Integer percentage of 3CaO.Al2O3 in the mixture.

X2

p3cs: Integer percentage of 3CaO.SiO2 in the mixture.

X3

p4caf: Integer percentage of 4CaO.Al2O3.Fe2O3 in the mixture.

X4

p2cs: Integer percentage of 2CaO.SiO2 in the mixture.

y

hear: Heat (cals/gm) evolved in setting, recorded to nearest tenth.

Details

The (lmridge) Hald data are identical to the (MASS) cement data except for variable names.
