Tips for searching properties data in Knovel

  • Use either the database search or properties search option.
  • Search the material than the number. For example, aluminum 6061 NOT 6061 aluminum.
  • In the Materials Properties Search, filter by the exact property. Drag and drop it into the search area, and change the parameters.
  • Once you locate the information you need, look at the FROM field. That is your source.  You can click on it for more information and to generate a citation.
