Bone -- Internal Modelling Relative to Attitude

I have a question pursuing research, and pardon if what I am asking should be 
obviously known. I am fairly certain I saw a reference to longbone modelling 
that indicated infrastructure related to that bone's habitual attitude, but I 
am not familiar with it. In furtherance of my edification, I am therefore 
wondering if anyone is aware of research and publications that describe the 
relationship of the infrastructure of bone (from the medullary cavity to the 
periosteum, and from the diaphysis to the epiphyses) to its habitual attitude? 
Does the relative position or attitude actually have any bearing on the 
infrastructure at all?
