A notched round tensile bar made of a new titanium alloy during a material stress test. The speckles on its surface are spots of paint. Cameras will record how the pattern of speckles changes as the bar deforms during the test. Analysis of those changes and other results of the test will reveal much about the alloy's strength and ductility. The new alloy has potential applications in aerospace components and medical devices.
