Metallurgists & Engineers in Florida

Southeastern Metallurgy
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 any field.

Dr. Carney has been an employee of the Naval Air Systems Command -- a component of the United States Navy -- for over three decades.  In 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.

Over 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 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 structural supports), industrial plant infractructure (chemical processing tanks, pressurized fuel delivery piping, corrosion control), component movement (overhead cranes, cables and chains) and many others.

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.
