Aaron Carr, M.S.M.E., P.E. is one of CED's Mechanical Engineers who has experience ranging from operation and maintenance of nuclear submarines to shipyard conversion of a multi-billion dollar nuclear engineering plant from warship to training platform. He holds Professional Engineer licenses in multiple states. After graduating from the United States Naval Academy, Mr. Carr served aboard several nuclear submarines within the United States Navy.
Assignments included Electrical Officer, Chemistry & Radiological Controls, Operational Safety Officer, and Diving Officer. Onboard, his submarine engineering systems and nuclear plant equipment duties included operation and maintenance of: nuclear reactors, steam generators, heat exchangers, hydraulic plants, pneumatic systems, steam turbines, control valves, diesel engineers, pumps, valves, water chemistry control, electrical power generation & distribution, as well as occupational safety and risk management in the industrial environment.
Prior to joining CED, Mr. Carr conducted forensic engineering as a consultant. In this role, he investigated mechanical equipment and structural system failures. Projects focused on failure analysis of boilers, furnaces, geothermal systems, gas piping (CSST), HVAC, plumbing, and water intrusion. Additionally, he investigated material quality of wood and porcelain, as well as galvanic corrosion.
Mr. Carr holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the United States Naval Academy and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School. While at the Naval Academy Mr. Carr earned his Navy offshore sailing ‘D’ qualification as he skippered sailing vessels in regattas and offshore training exercises. Rules of navigation and safety at sea were the foundations of his training.
