    1. 1. An Overview of Knovel G.I. Conference, 15 November 2007 Paul Walker
    2. 2. What is Knovel? <ul><li>Knovel is an online collection of technical reference material that is optimized in: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>search capabilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>interactive tools </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Engineers and scientists in specific disciplines find relevant and reliable information faster </li></ul><ul><li>Information aggregator – from leading sci-tech publishers and learned societies/institutes </li></ul>
    3. 3. Overview of Site >1,500 titles/databases in 18 subject areas
    4. 4. Knovel Focuses on Reference Material Reliability, Comprehensiveness Codes, Standards & Specs Design Manufacturing Maintenance Compliance Reliability Relevance Technical References Design Manufacturing Safety Comprehensiveness Patents Currency Comprehensiveness Journals & Abstracts R & D Key Characteristics Resources Used Field
    5. 5. Why Knovel is Unique  Converts units to locate more relevant results  Search optimized to find specific results in engineering and material selection searches  Indexes tables as well as text  Search for exact numeric values or ranges  Ebook Vendors  Provides interactive tables, graphs, and equations to better utilize results  Indexes references not available on Internet  Indexes public content on Internet Knovel Google
    6. 6. Optimized Search Highlights <ul><li>Complete indexing of contents – text, tables, and graphs </li></ul><ul><li>Built-in unit converter finds data independent of specified search units </li></ul><ul><li>Search criteria may contain both keywords and numeric values </li></ul><ul><li>Search for exact numeric values or ranges of numeric values </li></ul><ul><li>Search within reference library, subset, or single title </li></ul>
    7. 7. Oil & Gas Comprehensive Content Includes: Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook Chemical Process Equipment - Selection and Design Civil Engineer's Reference Book Standard Handbook of Machine Design Handbook of Electrical Engineering For Practitioners in the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industry Yaws' Handbook of Thermodynamic and Physical Properties of Chemical Compounds Chemical Properties Handbook Reservoir Engineering Handbook Piping Handbook Plant Engineer's Reference Book “ The interactive graphs save me a great deal of time when I am seeking a specific property, because I don't need to evaluate a complicated equation myself, plus there is no confusion over unit conversions because I can select which units the graph is displayed in.” -Engineer, BP Lange's Handbook of Chemistry Knovel Critical Tables Loss Prevention in the Process of Corrosion Engineering NALCO Water Handbook Mechanical Engineers' Handbook Standard Handbook of Machine Design Process Engineering Equipment Handbook 2004 ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section II – Materials International Critical Tables of Numerical Data, Physics, Chemistry and Technology Corrosion Resistant Materials Handbook Energy Efficiency Manual Handbook of Separation Process Technology Corrosion Survey Database (COR·SUR) Engineers' Guide to Rotating Equipment - The Pocket Reference Facility Piping Systems Handbook Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials Guidelines for Chemical Process Quantitative Risk Analysis Handbook of Petroleum Analysis 2001 ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section II - Materials Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers Pump Handbook

    10. 10. Interactive Features <ul><li>Interactive Tables </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Find, customize, and manipulate data as you would with a spreadsheet </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Equation Plotters </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plot your points on the graph curve or enter values into the corresponding X-Y table to see where they fall on the curve </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Export and print data and/or graphs </li></ul></ul>Interactive Tables Equation Plotters .
    11. 11. Interactive Features <ul><li>Process Modeling with Excel </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Model processes from a book in Excel using your own input data </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Interactive Graphs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Digitize one or more curves by plotting points on a graph; corresponding points are automatically displayed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Print, export, or save your data </li></ul></ul>Links to Excel Graph Digitizer
    12. 12. Interactive Tables Tabulated text from a PDF page in Knovel. Knovel converts this into data values in spreadsheet format so the user can manipulate and process the data.
    13. 13. Interactive Tables The Interactive Table has spreadsheet features – you can sort the rows and hide columns, and change the column order to focus on the relevant data
    14. 14. Interactive Tables Interactive Tables also allow filtering by attribute (column) and provide a convenient unit converter for use within the table
    15. 15. Equation Plotters This interactive table contains an Equation Plotter associated with the substance toluene Tabulated text and equation from the PDF in the book shown for reference
    16. 16. Equation Plotters The equation for the curve and the unit scale on the X and Y axes may be changed Select points by clicking on the curve; the X-Y coordinates appear in the box to the left
    17. 17. Equation Plotters You may export an image of the graph, and/or captured x/y values in a variety of formats
