Caption: Materials science laboratory. Laboratory technicians analysing and adjusting the equipment in a materials science laboratory. This equipment is designed to measure creep, which is where a material placed under a load continues to change shape and structure over time. This is one of many aspects analysed by researchers measuring the effects of force on objects (force metrology). Photographed at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK, in 1953.
