Knovel Introduces Engineering Design and Construction Essentials

Trusted Provider of Validated Engineering Content and Tools Helps Organizations Solve Challenging Technical Problems

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) -   Knovel, a Web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, today announced the immediate availability of Engineering Design and Construction Essentials. Leveraging 10 years of experience working with Engineering Design and Construction firms, including six of the top 10, and based upon historical data of frequent searches and most accessed content, the package was established to enable organizations to jumpstart their use of Knovel. As a result, engineers can easily access content that many top firms in the industry already have and frequently use to solve challenging technical problems, as well as research a variety of topics including material selection, process improvement, safety and compliance.

Strategically selected from the 23 total subject areas Knovel offers, Engineering Design and Construction Essentials provide engineers with access to content and tools in the following six subject areas:

  • Chemistry & Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering & Construction Materials
  • Electrical & Power Engineering
  • General Engineering & Engineering Management
  • Mechanics & Mechanical Engineering
  • Oil & Gas Engineering

Engineers spend one quarter of their working hours dealing with external information such as handbooks, materials property databases, libraries of math and best practices. Many are reassigned and work on cross-disciplinary problems, so it's difficult for them to just "know" what they need to know.

"Knovel's Engineering Design and Construction Essentials will help engineers to expand their personal knowledge base, incorporate information into their workflows, and ultimately, increase productivity and efficiency as they spend less time searching for relevant and reliable information," said Chris Forbes, CEO and president, Knovel.
