Abstract : Many soft tissues are naturally made of a matrix and fibres that present some privileged directions. They are known to support large reversible deformations. The mechanical behaviour of these tissues highlights different phenomena as hysteresis, stress softening or relaxation. A hyperelastic constitutive equation is typically the basis of the model that describes the behaviour of the material. The hyperelastic constitutive equation can be isotropic or anisotropic, it is generally expressed by means of strain components or strain invariants. This paper proposes a review of these constitutive equations.
