The present investigation aimed at visualizing the propagating crack in a mechano-luminescence (ML) material, which enabled us to measure instantaneous R-curves and observe directly the bridging (shielding) stress in the fast-propagating crack system. The well-known ML compound, SrAl2O4:Eu,Dy,Nd, was adopted as a testing material. The crack initiation and growth from the mechanically machined sharp notch tip in the disc shaped compact tension (CT) specimen at a relatively fast loading rate were found to be associated with the extent of light emission around the crack. The in-situ measurement of crack length and applied load for 0.3 sec yielded an instantaneous R-curve at the conventional crack propagation speed.
