About Us:

Southeastern Metallurgy is led and managed by Dr. Luis R. Carney.  Dr. Carney's education, training and experience is in Materials Science and Engineering.  His career has been dedicated to materials failure analysis (metals, ceramics, polymers and composites), accident investigation, part manufacturing, component processing and materials repair methods.  He looks forward to applying his wide-ranging experience to new challenges in any field.   

Dr. Carney has worked for the Naval Air Systems Command at Fleet Readiness Center Southeast, a component of the United States Navy (FRCSE Link), for nearly three decades.  In this capacity he has risen to the level of Senior Engineer and Team Leader (i.e. technical supervisor over 11+ engineers).  Over his career he has written over 700 peer reviewed failure analyses and consulted in hundreds more. In addition, he has been responsible for providing in-depth technical support to manufacturing operations and repair design engineers (FRCSE Video).

Over the course of the past 28+ years, Dr. Carney has been involved in solving a multitude of national and international engineering problems, incidents and accidents in support of U. S. Navy, Air Force, Marine and Army aviation programs.  He has advised and collaborated with industrial giants such as Boeing, Lockheed, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce Aircraft Engines to arive at novel engineering solutions.  As such he has earned a well-deserved reputation for clear reasoning, trustworthy advice and effective results.

In addition to aviation assets, Dr. Carney has worked on design, failures and repairs related to ground support equipment (tools, fixtures, structural stands, tow trucks, towing devices and supports), building infrastructure (chemical processing tanks, pressurized fuel delivery piping, corrosion control), component transport (overhead cranes, cables and chains) and many others.  

Please feel free to call to discuss your particular issue. There are few areas of materials or mechanical engineering in which we cannot assist:  904-233-3660

What is a Materials Engineer?:

A materials engineer (metals/polymers specialty) is essentially a metallurgist/polymer scientist with extensive college level coursework in many of the fundamental engineering classes such as advanced calculus, differential equations, statics, mechanics of materials, materials processing, manufacturing, thermodynamics, organic polymer physics and chemistry, and electrical engineering. Depending on the additional electives and graduate level courses taken during the college career, the materials engineer can tailor his technical training towards mechanical, aerospace, civil, chemical or electrical engineering.  Materials engineers, regardless of specialty, also aquire a solid working knowledge of ceramics, electronic and bio-materials.
