Orientation of whole bone samples of small rodents matters during bending tests.

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.
