Knovel Adds Welding Engineering and Materials Joining Subject Area

Expands Offerings for Mechanical, Design and Structural Engineers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2011) - Knovel, the leading provider of a Web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, today announced Welding Engineering and Materials Joining as a new subject area designed to help mechanical, design and structural engineers optimize welding workflows, select the best materials for the job, increase quality, reduce material waste and improve the performance of welds in service.

Knovel's Welding Engineering and Materials Joining subject area includes current information on best practices and standardized welding materials, and aims to help engineers across all industries increase the quality and performance of their products and avoid manufacturing hurdles.

"Welding continues to be a vital part of the advanced manufacturing, aerospace and construction industries, and with innovative products, new materials and increased use of automation and laser processes, it's more important than ever to ensure design engineers have access to the latest information on welding and materials joining," says Bob Wing, president of Wex-Americas, the exclusive distributor of AWS publications. "Knovel is a great way to increase the visibility of AWS's content among engineers, particularly those designing structures, machinery and equipment which depend on high-quality, high-precision and high-strength welds to meet their demanding requirements."

Knovel's Welding Engineering and Materials Joining subject area launches with content from leading publishers, institutes and societies including: American Welding Society (AWS), the Hobart Institute, Wiley, Elsevier and ASM International. Topics in this collection include:

  • Inspection and Testing
  • Metallurgy
  • Weld Process and Joint Design
  • Weld Structural Design

"We see an increasing demand for informative content on specific weld types and processes," says Meagan Cooke, Knovel's director of content strategy. "Knovel's Welding Engineering and Materials Joining subject area covers a diverse range of topics including primers on welding methods, descriptions of QA methods and examples of flaws and cumulative stress types. We strive to deliver deep content from reliable sources that is simply inaccessible through traditional online search."
