Information for first-time visitors

The employees of Lau Engineering Solutions GmbH (LES GmbH) and Ingenieurbüro Dr.-Ing.Gert Lau (IBL) would like to provide project engineers, designers and calculation engineers, as well as students, with a “neutral” platform for the exchange of information and ideas. We concentrate on the interests of apparatus, power plant and chemical plant engineering. Nevertheless, there is certainly also interesting information for designers and calculation engineers of pressurized components and systems in other branches of industry.

Of course, we cannot know everything and for legal and competitive reasons we are not allowed to publish all the information available to us. In this respect, this portal also depends on your cooperation. So if you have information about:

  • Problems with designs, and/or materials
  • cases of damage
  • Calculation algorithms
  • calculation programs
  • technical literature
  • Changes in standards or regulations
    that you would like to share with your colleagues, please let us know.
    We will try to publish your information here.
Tools for project engineers and designers

At www.pvp-software.de
you will find an extensive collection of online programs and Windows applications that enable project engineers and designers to estimate temperatures, stresses and deformations in plant engineering componen

Which material

Information on the physical and mechanical-technological properties of most materials used in apparatus, plant and pipeline construction can be found in our Online-Database, which are also available at www.pvp-software.de.

In addition, tools are stored there with which you can very quickly compare the properties of materials and thus very quickly decide which material would be better or would be suitable as a replacement material in the event of supply bottlenecks. Our customers very often use this option to find, for example, European replacement materials for ASME materials or vice versa.

Note: Gender-sensitive language is important to us. Therefore, we use gender-neutral terms on this portal whenever possible. In addition, we use the generic masculine. This explicitly refers to all genders (m/f/d). This procedure is for editorial reasons only and does not imply any kind of judgement.
