Heavy-ion collisons are typically characterized by the presence of many open reaction channels. In the energies around the Coulomb barrier, the main processes are elastic scattering, inelastic excitations of low-lying modes and fusion operations of one or two nuclei. The fusion process is generally defined as the effect of one-dimensional barrier penetration model, taking scattering potential as the sum of Coulomb and proximity potential. We have performed heay-ion fusion reactions with coupled-channel (CC) calculations. Coupled-channel formalism is carried out under barrier energy in heavy-ion fusion reactions. In this work fusion cross sections have been calculated and analyzed in detail for the five systems O-16 + Sm-147,Sm-148,Sm-150,Sm-152,Sm-154 in the framework of coupled-channel approach (using the codes CCFUS and CCDEF) and Wong Formula. Calculated results are compared with experimental data, CC calculations using code CCFULL and with the cross section datas taken from 'nrv'. CCDEF, CCFULL and Wong Formula explains the fusion reactions of heavy-ions very well, while using the scattering potential as WOODS-SAXON volume potential with Akyuz-Winther parameters. It was observed that AW potential parameters are able to reproduce the experimentally observed fusion cross sections reasonably well for these systems. There is a good agreement between the calculated results with the experimental and nrv[8] results.
