  Tension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, tension is a force related to the stretching of a string or a similar object.
The word 'tension' is also sometimes used to refer to electrical voltage; this is the usage in the term high-tension line.
In music tension is the perceived need for relaxation or release (Sturm und Drang) created by a listener's expectations as well as dissonance, repetition, tempo, a gradual rise in pitch, and other factors.

 Surface tension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In physics, surface tension is an effect within the surface layer of a liquid that causes the layer to behave as an elastic sheet.
Surface tension is caused by the attraction between the molecules of the liquid, due to various intermolecular forces.
A related quantity is the energy of cohesion, which is the energy released when two bodies of the same liquid become joined by a boundary of unit area.

Tension headaches are undoubtedly more common in people suffering from anxiety and depression and effective treatment of these conditions may result in improvement of the headache.
As tension headaches can last for a long time, this often arouses the suspicion in the sufferer and his or her doctor that a brain tumour could be the cause of symptoms.

 Surface tension, or interfacial tension (, )
The tension acting in the surface of tension is called the surface tension or interfacial tension and is expressed in terms of force per unit length.
In particular, surface tension is the intensive factor in the differential expression for the work required to increase the area of the surface of tension.
The surface tension may, therefore, also be expressed in terms of energy per unit area: it is not, however, in general equal either to the surface energy or to the surface Helmholtz energy per unit area (see §1.2.6).

The rubber bands are all in tension and paradoxically have the dual roles of holding the beams apart, and the structure together, in a flexible and stable equilibrium.
None of the beams or tension members are parallel, or perpindicular.
The rubber bands form two triangular faces, and they lie on parallel planes and give the structure a twisted appearance because the triangles differ by a rotation relative an axis perpendicular to the planes and the beams all have the same tilt, relative to that same axis.

 AYU Tactical RPG - Tension   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
Once the tension gauge is sufficiently full, the unit will be able to use the skills on its tension list -- in other words, certain skills and spells the unit mastered while it was another class (and, yes, even another class family).
When a tension skill is used, the unit's tension level will drop by half the amount of tension required to use that skill.
Though the game will only show the tension gauge going up to 100%, it can in fact go past this, and in the rare case that it reaches or exceeds 120%, the unit will go into a tension breaker and be able to use a tension skill without waiting for its next turn.
