Synchrotron high-energy X-ray scattering was used to study the in situ load partitioning between mineral and protein phases in cortical bone as a function of sample location. The anterio-medial quadrant of the femur was found to be the stiffest. The nanoscale level load partitioning in tension was significantly different from compression, for samples from the same animal, and implied asymmetry of elasto-plastic properties of collagen in the two loading modes.
