I am trying to simulate the results of a tensile test using Ansys. My research advisor has provided me with the UTS, 0.2% yield strength, elastic modulus, and Poisson's ratio value for four specimens with different build combinations. I entered the values manually and created new materials in the materials library. Then, I proceeded to use Explicit Dynamics with the following parameters:
Mesh size - 0.001m
Fixed boundary condition, displacement - 0.03 m in 0.001 s
Despite having entered 27 MPa as the ultimate tensile strength value, the stress in the model exceeds that value without any signs of failure. I have been trying to replicate the experimental results for two weeks now but to no avail. I would be highly grateful if I could receive some assistance in this matter.

you have deficint material model, UTS, 0.2% yield strength, elastic modulus, and Poisson's ratio are not sufficitent , you also need to model the plasticity definition, your material model should look like as follows (ideal, example)
you need to use an failure critieria from the engineerign data as follows
then you need to make sure that the failure is used by mateial not of geomentric strain limit
