Non-Linear Analysis

I have the stress strain curve for Radel material and I am trying to do some FEA stress analysis using the non-linear properties of the material. I know you have an option to input the stress strain curve for the material when you select the option Non-linear (see attached). When I do this and run the FEA again I still get exactly the same numbers. My understanding is that it is not considering the stress strain curve which I input in the material properties.


Also when I go the simulation mode in solidworks and try to input the material properties in the materials section (in simulation mode) I dont get the option to solve non-linear problem in that mode? see attached


Can someone help?
