In this article we present a non-linear incremental law with an infinity of domains of expression (or a continuous domain) and to which a validity domain is associated. The hypotheses used for the description of the law are first presented. We are able to describe the rate independent part of the material with four hypotheses and only one more hypothesis allows us to take into account the viscous part. This new model in which the description of history takes an important part has been carried out in order to narrow down the observed differences between reality and calculation with classical laws to describe the cyclic phenomena.

A comparison between numerical integration of the proposed rheological model and experimental results over cyclical and monotonous path for concrete are presented in the last section.
