After obtaining a BSc. in Mechanical Engineering, Ralph Brevet worked for more than 20 years as an installation and project engineer and was involved in many areas, including conceptual and detailed design, Front End Engineering Design(FEED), Joint Industry Projects, onshore fabrication and offshore pipeline construction.
During his career Ralph developed models and engineering tools to solve a wide range of engineering problems, including detailed design iterations, pipeline stability, handling and extracting data from very large survey files, replacement of legacy software, simulation of logistical scenario's, dredging pump calculations and visualisation of data logger files.
Ralph's company Str8wave specialises in developing small scale, customised and client specific tools and software. Algorithms can be designed from scratch or alternatively client supplied algorithms can be implemented in a modern Windows program. Other services include legacy software and spreadsheet conversions to Windows programs, technical writing and documentation and general engineering services.
One of the strengths of Str8wave is that the algorithm developer, interface designer and coder are united in one single person, which guarantees intuitive and user friendly tools.
