In reinforced concrete, failure that is induced by plastic deformation of the steel reinforcing rods.

The results of experiments show that the shear failure of reinforced concrete (RC) slender beams without stirrups is always governed by diagonal tension failure mode rather than compression failure mode.
Altec chose to provide extra engineered reinforcement at these locations since they tend to be the most frequent tension failure points for all earphones.
All the groups of glulam beams tested in four-point bending exhibited tension failure in the wood with the exception of one prestressed glulam beam that failed in compression.
The internal stability of the wall is checked against tension failure and pull out failure.
In effect, therefore, a tension failure was initiated in the surface material of the wall.

When loaded to failure following the completion of fatigue testing, all three specimens exhibited a tension failure near the bottom of the beam between the load heads that initiated at a finger joint or knot.
This indicates that additional shear reinforcement of a laminated fiber reinforced beam can further increase the beam capacity by shifting the failure mode to tension failure.
Most specimens in the three groups (male-female, reverse, and feather) failed mainly in simple tension characterized by a combination of brash tension failure and splitting of wood fibers.
In reality, a combination of shear and tension failure occur.

In heavy timber framing with rectangular mortise and tenon joints, this behavior is cited as potentially advantageous because it may give a warning of overloading and potential impending failure, in contrast to sudden tenon shear or tension failures which could lead to catastrophic structural failures (Schmidt and Scholl 2000, Burnett et al.
