Engineers at the world’s leading Aerospace & Defense companies turn to Knovel for trusted answers to technical questions.

Engineers that use Knovel have an advantage over peers who do not; they save time and, as a result, are more efficient.  Navigating multiple sources of information to find materials data, best practice and other technical references is a top frustration among engineers. This is particularly true during product design and development.

Knovel provides a single, searchable source of validated technical references, including a collection of materials data with exclusive, interactive databases  including innovative lightweight alloys. Knovel users frequently incorporate Knovel’s materials data into their calculations and analysis.

Knovel also marries materials data with applications and best practices. For example, when users find answers in a series of military handbooks including Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization (MMPDS-05), they also find data in context of usage.

Knovel provides guidance and best practice information on a wide range of product development topics including tolerances, heat transfer and thermodynamics, adhesion, coatings, vibration, environmental impacts and energy efficiency.

Try Knovel Today. You'll Be in Good Company.

7 of the world’s top 10 Aerospace and Defense companies turn to Knovel for trusted answers.

Engineers at Raytheon, Spirit Aerosystems, SpaceX, Gulstream and Northrop Grumman tap Knovel as they seek answers to technical questions.

”When I am looking for materials data in the initial design phase, I most often use MMPDS within Knovel because it is searchable.“– Strength Analyst (Aerospace), Major Engineering Company

”I use the data search tool to find materials properties. I like that I can type in parameters, and Knovel will tell me which materials fit those criteria.“– Structural Design Analyst (Aerospace) , Major Engineering Company

READ A SOLUTION STORY. The Space orbiter is the orbital spacecraft of the Space Shuttle program. This space-plane carries crews and payloads, performs on-orbit operations, then re-enters the atmosphere with crews and any on-board payload to the Earth. In this solution story, we evaluate the natural frequency of a rectangular plate and make sure it is far outside the resonance zone.
