General view of technicians conducting tensile tests on new aircraft alloys at the Naval Air Material Center's Aeronautical Materials Laboratory. In tensile, or tension, testing, tensile machines are used to subject materials samples to controlled tension until failure. In materials science, such testing is used to select a material for an application, for quality control, and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces.
