Modulus of Elasticity

Does anyone know if SolidWorks has the capability to change the Modulus of Elasticity from tension to compression, or vice versa? I ask this because my company does analysis of models that are gray cast iron, which is much stronger in compression than tension. We think that we might not get false high stress readings if it were possible to play with the modulus of elasticity based on compressive v. tensile stress. Thanks for the help.
