Final Report - MESMESH (Ultra-thin conductive ceramic mesh to monitor stress and wear on a steel surface)

Project ID: 229099
Funded under: FP7-NMP


This is the final summary report for the MESMESH project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). MESMESH's general aim was to create a cheap, innovative ultra-thin conductive ceramic mesh to monitor stress and wear on a steel surface, incorporating novel technologies centred on laser etching, conductive ceramic alloys and advanced algorithms capable of detecting wear and tear or damage to a metal surfaces in real-time production environments. For this purpose, a pre-commercial prototype mould was developed with an in situ sensor and measurement system to allow continuous structural health monitoring.

The report includes initially a summary focusing on the project context and the benefits of the MESMESH sensor technology as well as the innovative research areas that the project focused on. It then introduces its context in further detail and presents the main scientific and technological objectives. Furthermore, some of the results achieved and the innovative solutions proposed are highlighted. The report closes with an overview of the results' potential impact.
