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

This can be attributed to the fact that the response of these beams is mainly governed by diagonal tension failure.
The calculated results, based on leading characteristic curve models for bolted jolts, are presented as margins of safety for bearing failure, shear failure, and net tension failure for each plate, as well as the margin of safety for the fastener and sleeve if used.
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.
In this regard it is recommended that concrete in which anchorage is bonded shall have sufficient strength which should not fail prior to the tension failure of anchor bolts.
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.
Mid span deflections increased with the increase of the applied load, recording its average maximum of 78 mm when the beams started to fail by tension failure of its bottom fibers.
In effect, therefore, a tension failure was initiated in the surface material of the wall.
In effect, therefore, 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.
