Hi

 

These values are only  used I believe for calculating failure criteria such as say Tsai-Wu etc.

See the help manual:

’This data table defines the strength limits and other related constants required for computing failure criteria (FC) index of a material under various loading conditions'

See an example on that and how they are used for FC:

Thank you
