2. Powerful search engine designed around the ways engineers search for information

The value of Knovel’s content is extended by optimized search and data analysis tools enabling engineers to not only easily find relevant data but also analyze, document and incorporate it into their everyday work.

You can start with simple keyword and phrase searches. Or, if you want to dig a little deeper, searching on Knovel supports unlimited Boolean searching with wildcard truncation, phrase matching and bibliographic limit fields, even if the data you're looking for is buried in a table, graph or chart, or published in a different set of units, Knovel is precise enough to return 3 relevant rows from a table of 5000

3. Interactive tools that normalize information across content sources and bring content to life by making tables, charts, equations, plotters and graphs interactive.

Tables and charts found in Knovel’s online reference collection deliver not only the data users trust but also let them extract it for further analysis.
Knovel’s data analysis tools ensure you not only find the information hidden in complex graphs, equations and tables quickly, but also analyze and manipulate data as easily as sorting a spreadsheet. Knovel enables you to extract data for further analysis. Downloading data into Excel is not only easy and seamless but also preserves an information source for future documentation and reference.

Knovel's Interactive Tables

Allow you to rearrange rows/columns, hide selected rows/ columns to better feature the relevant data, and even export it to a spreadsheet. And, as users expect from Knovel, the exported tables always come with a citation source for purposes of verification.

Knovel’s Interactive graphs

Allow you to determine precise data coordinates without having to rely on error-prone extrapolation techniques.Relevant data can then be exported to support your conclusions and to offer a source citation for subsequent peer review.
