The dynamics of heavy-ion fusion reaction involved in the interaction of 12C,14N and 16O projectiles with,59Co, 51V,128Te and165Ho targets at≈3-8MeV/nucleon specific energies was studied. This study focus on the correlation between entrance channel properties and incomplete fusion reaction. The experimentally measured excitation functions of various reaction products populated by complete and/or incomplete fusions of 12C+59Co, 128Te,14N+128Teand 16O+ 51V, 165Hoprojectile-target systems available in the literature. Were compared and analyzed with the predicted excitation functions, using the statistical model code PACE4. For representative non-α-emittingchannels, the experimentally measured excitation functions were, in general, found to be in good agreement with the theoretical predictions. However, for α-emitting channels in the present systems, the measured excitation functions were higher than the predictions of the theoretical model code, which may be credited to incomplete fusion reactions at these energies. An attempt was made to approximate the incomplete fusion fraction that explains the relative importance of incomplete fusion processes. The incomplete fusion fraction was found to be sensitive to the projectile energy and mass-asymmetry of the entrance channel.
