Abstract: The popular elastic law of Fung that describes the non-linear stress- strain behavior of soft biological tissues is extended into a viscoelastic material model that incorporates fractional derivatives in the sense of Caputo. This one-dimensional material model is then transformed into a three-dimensional constitutive model that is suitable for general analysis. The model is derived in a configuration that differs from the current, or spatial, configuration by a rigid-body rotation; it being the polar configuration. Mappings for the fractional-order operators of integration and differentiation between the polar and spatial configurations are presented as a theorem. These mappings are used in the construction of the proposed viscoelastic model.
