This work extends the research program of the authors into the design and analysis of complex experiments. It shows how the special algebraic structures studied in the polynomial ring algebra and Gröbner basis environment can be exploited for situations in which there is blocking, nesting, crossing and so on, or where groups of factors are "favoured" over others. The connection is made between the Gröbner basis methods and the more classical symbolic formalism associated, for example, with Generalised Linear Model packages, such as S-Plus and Glim. Examples are given from physical experiments in engine mapping.
