is owned and operated by Dr. Luis R. Carney. Dr.
Carney is a
metallurgist with three degrees in Materials Science and
Engineering from the University of Florida.
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
Carney has been an employee of the Naval Air Systems Command -- a
component of the United States Navy -- for over three
this capacity he has risen to the level of Senior Engineer and Team
Leader (i.e. technical supervisor over 11+ engineers). In the
course of his federal civil service career he has written over 850 peer
reviewed failure analyses and consulted in thousands more. In addition,
he has been responsible for providing in-depth technical support to
aviation manufacturing operations and repair design engineers.
the past 30+ 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
such as Boeing, Lockheed, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney,
Rolls-Royce Aircraft Engines to arive at novel engineering
solutions. As such he has earned a well-deserved reputation
clear reasoning, trustworthy advice and effective results.
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 structural supports),
industrial plant infractructure (chemical processing tanks, pressurized
fuel delivery piping, corrosion control), component movement (overhead
cranes, cables and chains) and many others.

call to discuss your particular issue. There are few areas of materials
or mechanical engineering in which we cannot assist:
is a Materials Engineer:
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.
