Collagen fiber bundles oriented with the direction of testing produce a higher normal stiffness while collagen fiber bundles oriented out of the plane of testing produce a lower stiffness but a higher shear stiffness.

(1991) Effects of biomechanical stress on bones in animals Diagram removed for copyright reasons. When bone is subjected to bending, fluid is forced through the canalicular channels from regions of greater compression toward regions of lesser compression (or from more concave surfaces to more convex surfaces). This gradient of flow is proportional to the strain gradient across the cortex of the bone. The magnitude of the fluid shear stress on osteocytes lying within the lacunae is proportional to the rate at which fluid is forced through these channels, which in turn is proportional to the strain rate.
