How to use uniaxial tension and compression data for rubber?

      I have uniaxial tension and compression test data. How do I use this to model rubber materials?n

      One can use test data directly with the Response Function Hyperelastic model. This does not require any curve-fitting and will use the data exactly. One would separate and enter the uniaxial tension and compression data directly. One also need to define the compressibility either by including pressure-volume test data or specifying the material compressibility parameter. Details of the Response Function Hyperelastic model can be found in the ANSYS Help sections below:nhttps://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v190/ans_mat/aQw8sq22dldm.html%23respfunc_mat nCurve-fit to hyperelastic model: If one wish to perform curve-fitting on predefined hyperelastic models,then include both compression and tension in the uniaxial test data. Be sure to just put the values in ascending order, and there should be a (0,0) data point.n
