Dynamic visualization of stress distribution even due to a small deformation has been realized by coating the surface of the test object of metal with a upgrade mechanoluminescence (ML) material of SrAl2O 4:Eu (SAO). In this paper we report the application of this ML sensing technique to stress concentration analysis on an aluminium plate. And the comparison with a theoretical calculation demonstrated that the ML intensity of SAO sensing film correlates linearly with von Mises stress on metal surface and the observed real-time ML images quantitatively reflect stress concentration.
