Knovel Adds Interactive Problem Sets to Popular Engineering Textbook

Knovel, a web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools, has incorporated real-world problem sets into the 6th edition of the textbook, The Science and Engineering of Materials, by Askeland, Fulay, and Wright. Working closely with publisher Cengage Learning, Knovel has added value to the core text by presenting a unique set of problems and solutions in each chapter. Based upon the topic of each chapter, students can search Knovel's engineering content and use the search optimization features and data analysis tools to answer a range of questions.

Currently, more than 300 universities, including 12 of the top 15 engineering schools in the U.S., subscribe to Knovel. Students and instructors at non-subscribing schools will have trial access to select Knovel content for a semester in order to complete problems highlighted in the text.

"We continually seek innovative ways to successfully engage students in the learning process, so we were particularly interested in Knovel's combination of reference content and data analysis tools," said Chris Shortt, publisher of the Global Engineering Program for Cengage Learning. "Knovel's additions to The Science and Engineering of Materials text will help professors expand the variety of problem sets they provide to students and allow them to comply with certification programs provided by ASEE."

Instructors may also access the problems and solutions online at
