How does SW Nonlinear simulation simulate hyperelastic materials under compression when there are only tension test data required?

Had this question for a while. Hope someone here can tell me a few fundamentals in SolidWorks Simulation.


Can users simulate how the material is going to react and perform under compression when all the material data input is about tension tests (Uniaxial, biaxial and planar tension tests)? I know the answer is yes the simulation can do that. But how does tension test data associate with reaction under compression?


Thanks in advance.
