Me again.

How can I model a material that behaves differently under compression stress (compared with tensile stress)?

Many thanks

In your material function "stress vs. strain" input the tensile and compressive behaviour of the material.

That is, negative values for strain and stress?

Yes. Something similar to this should work:
