The study deals with scientometric study on the Growth of Literature on Aerodynamic Research. The required data was collected from SCOPUS database for the period 2006 – 2015. It can be seen that nearly 41628 bibliographic records of contribution in field of Aerodynamic cover the period of 10 years. The researcher applied the search strings “(KEY (Aerodynamics) AND PUBYEAR > 2005 AND PUBYEAR < 2016)” that has used for the data extraction from the database downloaded the records based on the above strings. A total of 41628 records were downloaded and analyzed by using the Excel software with application as per the objectives of the study. This research study explores the growth rate and relative growth level during the study period. The study aims to analyze the thrust areas of research concentration on Aerodynamic research. It is analytical in nature with the suitable statistical tools applications in strengthening the empirical validity. The study based on Scopus bibliographic database has been used and searched using the word „„Aerodynamic” for the period 2006-2016 and extracted 41628 records with full bibliographical details such as Title, Authors, Source, Year, Country, Subject, Language and so on.
