Engineering data in ansys

In the engineering data tab the automatic material is strctural steel.
My problem is when i have steel with better strength the the regular steel so the stress-strain curve is differen in the elastic zone, but they have the same young modulus. how can i insert it to the engineering data when i insert new material? Which fields i should fill?
I have a tension test for this material.

RE: Engineering data in ansys

Look into Plasticity toolbox in Engineering Data. You have a few options how to model plasticity.
In your case "Bilinear isotropic hardening" or "Multilinear isotropic hardening" should do.

Please note that normally tension test data is defined as engineering stress and strain.
