This note presents a model suitable for the mechanical characterization of isotropic materials with different behavior in tension and compression. The model has been derived from the nonlinear elastic theory and elaborated to adapt it to the small deformation field; the constitutive relation may reliably correlate stress and strain fields even in three-dimensional elastic problems.
