Knovel is a cloud-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools to drive innovation and deliver answers engineers can trust. Knovel’s three key elements – validated content, optimized search, and data analysis tools – enable engineers to not only easily find relevant data, but also analyze, document and incorporate it into their everyday work.

Knovel offers more than 30 subject areas featuring guidance and best practice information on a wide range of topics including material selection and tolerances, environmental impacts, safety and compliance.

Knovel’s search functionality “understands” engineering language. Users can find data hidden in tables, graphs, and equations, and they can execute numeric range and multi-variable searches. Knovel’s content includes more than 90,000 interactive tables, equation plotters, charts and graphs that can be manipulated and exported into other tools such as Excel or PTC’s Mathcad.
