Question about material properties from Mechanical to Mechanical APDL

Why does MPLIST and TBLIST not show the Compressive Ultimate, Compressive Yield, Tensile Ultimate, and Tensile Yield material properties?

    Historically these material properties have not been supported in MAPDL with MP and TB commands and hence not availabel in MPLIST or TBLIST. Mechanical has expanded to include some properties that are used for postprocessing such as for factor of safety or life type calculations. In MAPDL commands like SALLOW are used (not MP or TB) to input limit stresses for some postprocessing like FOS or MS calculations. Also there are damage models, fracture models etc that also required relevant failure data that are usually input with TBxx series of commands.
