A relation is established between the heredity theory with time-invariant nonlinearity and fractional-exponential kernels and the Volterra-Fréchet theory for uniaxial tension. A constitutive equation is proposed for processes accompanied by decreasing strain. A procedure for determining the necessary material characteristics from creep and recovery data is considered.
