Tbh this is a bit of an experiment I'm doing for my study. Yes, the curve obtained was from a tensile test, but the material did not experience strain hardening. It experienced strain softening, but in some cases only subtle and in others more aggressive. But since ANSYS does not deal with strain softening and the values are somewhat consistent, I've opted into using a multilinear hardening model and observe the error between the experimental test. 

To answer the second question, no necking occurred. The material presented that strain softening behavior and then ruptured.
