    why the bones of the human body are stronger in resisting compression than in resisting tension and shear?
    here's what i found out
    because the bones are constructed like a reinforce concrete thus creating a high compression strength and tension strength..
    is this the only reason?am I missing any things out?examples the materials of the bones also affect the strength of the bones.or how the bones are built example its hollow?
    please kindly advise..TYVM
