Enumerating nonisomorphic orthogonal arrays is an important, yet very difficult problem. Although orthogonal arrays with a specified set of parameters have been enumerated in a number of cases, general results are extremely rare. In this paper, we provide a complete solution to enumerating nonisomorphic two-level orthogonal arrays of strength d with d + 2 constraints for any d and any run size n = l2d. Our results not only give the number of nonisomorphic orthogonal arrays for given d and n, but also provide a systematic way of explicitly constructing these arrays. Our approach to the problem is to make use of the recently developed theory of J-characteristics for fractional factorial designs. Besides the general theoretical results, the paper presents some results from applications of the theory to orthogonal arrays of strength two and three.
