New site: WSEAS is moving to our new site very soon You can now visit the new website and give us ideas, comments and valuable feedback. The indexing of our Journals will continue in the same indexes normally.

Also, we would like to inform you the 100% of the WSEAS staff (even the secretariats) are currently with Ph.D. in Engineering, Physics, Biology, Mathematics and Computer Science.

New Format for WSEAS Journals:

WSEAS has one of the more strict and robust academic peer review processes worldwide. WSEAS has launched a compulsory certification from all the authors and for all the papers in order to certify and authenticate that each accepted paper by the Editors-in-Chief is backed by a minimum of 3 reviewers' positive recommendation.

Authors must fill in and sign the following Certification - Evaluation for the Review Process:

We do not publish any paper without this Certification. After 2019, the Certifications are published together with the articles online.

Before the commencement of the Peer Review, organized by Editor-in-Chief or some Associate Editor, WSEAS makes a pre-screening quality control / review checking the following:
a) Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism avoidance control via Turnitin and iThenticate.
b) The English Language of the paper.
c) Affiliation of the prospective authors (i.e. Do they belong to a University or to a real company or to a real institute? can their university be identified? can their Academic URL be identified on the web? Do they use academic/professional email addresses? have they provided a phone number when they uploaded their paper? Does their IP, from where uploaded their paper, agree with their country?).
d) The References (i.e. Are the references adequate? Does the paper include references from the last 5 years? Can the references be traced easily via google, Do the references report the year of the publication?).
e) Are their indications that some prospective authors have not substantially contributed to the research?
For example a paper in Civil Engineering with an author from a surgery clinic in a Hospital.

Roughly, 20% of the papers are usually rejected in this pre-screening quality control / review checking. This acts as a first filtering which saves valuable time of the Reviewers and the Editors-in-Chief.

Since 1996, the WSEAS offers consistently high quality, line by line, thorough, rigorous, strict peer review process and very high editorial standards of care to its authors and readers. This page contains some comments from just a few of our authors about their experience of publishing with us:   

If some authors feel that they have not received, at least, 3 positive opinions from 3 independent reviewers with strong peer review, they should not sign this form. All the Certifications - Evaluations of the Review Process for each paper are available to everybody after a simple request by email

Peer Review and High Rejection Rates:

Here you can find databases containing all submitted articles to the WSEAS Journals for the recent years
You can see what papers have been accepted and what papers have been rejected.
Acceptance rates, which are approx 20%, can be found within.

List of Reviewers can be found here

Two Elementary Problems of Shell Deformation in Plasticity

Ioannis Doltsinis (Germany)

The two problems of plastic deformation of membrane shells dealt with are, the expansion of a spherical shell by internal pressure, and the shaping of a dome out of a circular disk. The first problem is easily accessible to an analytical solution which overcomes the pressure maximum and establishes the relationship between the expanding sphere radius and the pertaining pressure in dependence of the hardening of the material. This case may be considered in some sense introductory to the second problem, where a flat circular disk, clamped along the periphery, is blown by pressure such that a dome is formed [...]


Numerical Simulation of Droplet Combustion using Volume-of-Fluid Method

Tadashi Watanabe (Japan)

The droplet combustion is simulated numerically. The Navier-Stokes equations and the energy conservation equations together with the combustion model equations are solved in the computational fluid dynamics framework using the volume-of-fluid method. The characteristics of temperature increase due to combustion are simulated well, and the effect of ambient flow is made clear. It is shown that the droplet shape is varying and the high temperature region spreads widely in the ambient flow. The internal vortex flow is found to be driven by the surface tension force [...]


Simulation of wave run-up by means of the exact solution
of the wet/dry Riemann problem

Marco Tamburrino, Giovanni Cannata (Italy)

An innovative method for the simulation of the hydrodynamics in the swash zone, related to the wave run-up phenomenon, is presented. This method applies the exact solution of the Riemann problem over a dry bed to correctly evaluate the celerity of water waves propagating over the shore, and so to precisely track the coastline location. The simulations of velocity and wave fields outside the surf zone, inside the surf zone and in the swash zone, are carried out by means of a numerical model which solves 3D motion equations expressed in integral form, with a vertical coordinate that varies in time in order to follow the free surface evolution [...]


Robust Denoising Method Based on Tensor Models
Decomposition for Hyperspectral Imagery

Salah Bourennane, Caroline Fossati (France)

In the hyperspectral images (HSI) acquired by the new-generation hyperspectral sensors the signal dependent noise is an important limitation to the detection or classification. Therefore, noise reduction is an important preprocessing step to analyze the information in the hyperspectral image (HSI). A signal dependent noise cannot be reduced by conventional linear filtering [...]

Case Study on Geocoding Based Scheduling Optimization In
Supply Chain Operations Management

Steffen S. Rasmussen, Malleswara Talla, Raul Valverde (Denmark, Canada)

Traditional approach of ad-hoc geocoding for required addresses is quite time consuming and inefficient. In this paper, we propose and examine that the company-wide operations and addresses be geo-coded and stored in a database. As a case study, a geographical database is created for a company with primary focus to optimize operations management. This is done by storing the address information, the road network and a matrix containing time and distances to every address in the database. This approach prevents a lot of potential errors with ad hoc geocoding because every address is looked up in the database. The same goes for the time and distance matrix. Because the time and distances are stored for the distance between every address, no computations are needed at runtime [...]


Omnidirectional source modeling for ray tracing in room
acoustics with specular reflection

Benoit Beckers (France)

The aim of this work is to show that the use of a ray tracing method based on stratified Monte Carlo with cells of equal area and equal aspect ratio gives the most convincing results in room acoustic simulation. It is compared with three other methods: the first one is very close but simply uses equal area cells, the second one is a Monte Carlo importance sampling and the last one is a standard Monte Carlo where the values of the spherical coordinates of the rays are generated randomly [...]
