This bibliometric analysis in this paper aims to study the quantitative progress done in the artificial compressibility (AC) method-based CFD simulation and analyze its potential in solving incompressible flow simulations in computational fluid dynamics smoothly. The sector of CFD is enhancing more and more maturely due to advancements in computing architecture, numerical methods, and simulation tools. There have been various attempts to solve the pressure-velocity coupling issue in the Navier-Stokes equation. The artificial compressibility method (ACM), as opposed to pressure-correction methods, solves the incompressible equation in a non-segregated manner. With the introduction of the ACM, the system of the equation becomes hyperbolic in pseudo-time and consequently, numerical techniques used for hyperbolic solvers can be used. This paper focuses on the development done in this ACM formulation-based CFD research since 2000 and the following years. The bibliometric analysis and research are performed based on 139 published papers collected from Scopus. The main purpose of this analysis is to systematically and statistically study the data based on various parameters which will help in searching the gap. This survey can be beneficial while analyzing and studying the type and the measure of work done in this area and the future scope of the research.
