In this paper, we exploit some intersection matrices to empower a backtracking approach based on Kramer-Menser matrices. As an application, we consider the interesting family of simple t−(t+8, t+2, 4) designs 1 ≤ t ≤ 4, and provide a complete classification for t=1, 4 as well as a classification of all non-rigid designs for t=2, 3. We also enumerate all rigid designs for t=2. The computations confirm the results obtained in Denny and Mathon [4] through the new approach which is much simpler. Finally a list of other designs constructed by this method is provided.
