The influence of the orientation of rat bones on their mechanical response is analyzed in this research. 28 femora obtained from 14 Sprague-Dawley rats. This result confirms that the mechanical properties of the bone tissue depend on its position in the cross-section and provides a reliable explanation to understand the response of the bones when subjected to bending tests.
