Knovel: Engineering innovation in record time

Data is everywhere. But data alone doesn’t create impact. To transform engineering outcomes, you need to quickly find multidisciplinary knowledge you can trust.

Knovel helps you apply engineering data, technical references and interactive tools to:

  • Accelerate R&D to achieve goals, such as net zero compliance
  • Validate designs for prototyping, scale-up and manufacturing
  • Prepare technical professionals for new engineering challenges

Knovel had very detailed materials information for the specific materials we were looking at. We could compare them side-by-side with exactly the data we needed. Without Knovel we would have spent 3X more time, energy and resources in pulling together that information.
