Online Engineering Resource Knovel Expands its Interactive Equations Dataset to Cover More than 1,100 across Eight Subject Areas

New York, January 5, 2016

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the expansion of Knovel Interactive Equations. The added content will include coverage of chemical, mechanical and civil engineering on new equations on section properties, shear and stress, subsurface structural engineering, oil and gas processing equipment operation and steam properties.

More than 1,100 definitive equations across eight subject areas are now available through Knovel’s powerful search engine and featuring interactivity unique to the Knovel platform. Knovel’s fully integrated Math Solver enables engineers and scientists to access Knovel’s interactive equations or build their own. Students, professors, as well as practicing engineers and managers worldwide have found the Math Solver useful for accelerating their work and simplifying collaboration with colleagues. Knovel’s Math Solver and the accompanying library of interactive equations are freely available to every Knovel registered user, and can be found at

“Typically trapped in old text books or flat PDF files, equations are simultaneously one of the most powerful but underutilized tools in an engineer’s toolbox,” said Ken Klapproth, Vice President, Engineering & Technology Solutions Marketing, Elsevier. “The online Knovel platform makes the equations foundational to every engineering discipline easily discoverable while their interactivity makes them immediately actionable so engineers can quickly find, manipulate, solve and share models describing complex relationships and physical phenomena. Knovel Interactive Equations frees engineers to use the seminal equations in their discipline in a modern and contemporary way.”

Knovel Interactive Equations is a powerful addition to Knovel’s award-winning productivity tools for engineers. Users have access to validated, discoverable equations and corresponding calculation examples. Equations have been added to eight subject areas currently featured by Knovel: Chemistry & Chemical Engineering, Mechanics & Mechanical Engineering, Metals and Metallurgy, Electronics & Semiconductors, Electrical & Power Engineering, General Engineering & Project Administration, Civil Engineering, and Oil & Gas Engineering. Knovel Interactive Equations are available to customers with subscriptions to these subject areas. For additional information, speak to a Knovel account representative.
