The fractional calculus is used in the constitutive relationship model of viscoelastic fluid. A generalized Maxwell model with fractional calculus is considered. Based on the flow conditions described, two flow cases are solved and the exact solutions are obtained by using the Weber transform and the Laplace transform for fractional calculus.
