In this paper, a framework based on Augmented Reality (AR) and a mobile device is proposed for monitoring mechanical components during fatigue tests. This solution enables the user to move around and to inspect the component through AR from different points of view. In addition, the framework proposes a solution to estimate in real time the crack growth and to visualize it directly onto the component. A user application is developed according to the proposed framework and it is used for case studies of fatigue test for adhesively bonded joints.
