If yes, then how can we be sure that this class of materials have a different Elastic modulus and strength in tension and compression? Or a material test is necessary to determine this?June 18, 2021 at 9:22 am1shanAnsys EmployeeSome time back I read about a class of materials called as Bimodular materials, which show different elastic moduli in tension and compression. Examples include a few elastomers, soft biological tissue, certain composites and rock like materials. You can have a look at these articles -
1. Sun, Jun-yi, et al. "A review on the research of mechanical problems with different moduli in tension and compression."Journal of mechanical science and technology24.9 (2010): 1845-1854.,
2. Bertoldi, Katia, D. Bigoni, and W. J. Drugan. "Nacre: an orthotropic and bimodular elastic material."Composites Science and Technology68.6 (2008): 1363-1375
3. C.W. Bert, J.N. Reddy, Mechanics of bimodular composite structures, in: Z. Hashin, C.T. Herakovich (Eds.), Mechanics of Composite Materials: Recent Advances, Proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium, Virginia Polytech. Inst., Blacksburg, VA, Pergamon, Oxford, 1983, pp. 323ÔÇô364

This question is related to the shape of the potential energy curve of atoms in close proximity. If you have a look on such curves, the shape is nearly symmetric in both tension and compression but most of the time only for small deformations. Here a reference paper about this: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274434771_Potential_Energy_Curves_Material_Properties
And another example with this paper about biological tissues: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3099446/
Finally, this question is quite recurrent in the field of indentation testing, especially to know if indentation modulus is equal to tensile or bending Young's modulus:
And some information can be found in these AICs:
