## DOE for nonlinear complex relations

Hello

I want to research whether different factors have a significant impact on the response in a complex non linear phenomenon. My hypothesis is that 5 controllable factors both discrete and continuous have impact on the response.

Is it possible to use a methodology similar to this one:

The phenomenon of research is the recoilless launching of a projectile from a metallic tube/launcher. Factors are different design parameters in the projectile design.
