A generalized impedance boundary condition (GIBC) is developed to approximate the scattering of a plane acoustic wave from a bone structure such as a rib. In particular, the rib and surrounding tissue are modeled as a viscoelastic cylinder of infinite length immersed in an infinite, inviscid fluid medium. In order to determine the scattered pressure wave, appropriate boundary conditions are imposed on the relevant differential equations at the fluid-solid surface. The exact solution is then used to develop first- and second-order impedance boundary conditions applicable at the surface of the cylinder. Numerical results demonstrate the improved accuracy of the second order condition
