This study focusses on the remodelling of biological tissues in the framework of the theory of material uniformity. A constitutive evolution model is introduced, including fibre recruitment and reorientation, and subjected to the entropy inequality, which enforces the Second Principle of Thermodynamics. The model is applied to a numerical example describing a pressurised fibre-reinforced cylinder, roughly representing an artery, and is able to capture the major characteristics of remodelling in arteries, as reported in the literature.
