Asia Pacific Journal on Computational Engineering volume 2, Article number: 1 (2015)
Retraction to: Asia Pacific Journal on Computational Engineering 2014, 1:6 DOI 10.1186/2196-1166-1-6
This article  has been retracted by Professor Nguyen-Dang Hung, Editor-in-Chief of Asia Pacific Journal on Computational Engineering.
Upon investigation carried out according to the Committee on Publication Ethics guidelines, it has been found that the authors have duplicated substantial parts from the following article by T. Nguyen-Thoi, P. Phung-Van, M.H. Nguyen-Thoi, H. Dang-Trung , published in Journal of Computational Applied Mathematics.
This is a violation of publication ethics which, in accordance with the Springer Policy on Publishing Integrity, warrants a retraction of the article and a notice to this effect to be published in the journal.
