What is Knovel
Knovel provides a searchable database of handbooks, data sets and reference sources in science, technology and engineering. Knovel has data search feature that allows the researcher to find materials that meet specific parameters including physical, mechanical and thermal properties. Productivity tools include interactive charts, graphs, spreadsheets, and equation plotters. Helpers include an interactive periodical table, an Excel™ add-in, a comprehensive unit converter and a My Knovel® ToGo app.
