Returns the known study designs for which power and sample size can be calculated within this package.
Returns a data.frame with
= number of the design
= character string for identifying the design
= degrees of freedom of the design
= 'robust' degrees of freedom of the design
= step width in the iterative sample size estimation
= so-called design constant in terms of total n
= design constant in terms of number of subjects in (sequence) groups
The design character string has to be used in the functions calls for power and sample size.
This function is for informal purposes and will be used internal for obtaining characteristics of the designs used in calculation formulas.
