Hi Sumit,


We do not suggest you to use .mtb file and replace it in HyperForm. Either, get the below material properties for the same and create in HF.


1. Density

2. Youngs Modulus

3. Poisson's ratio

4. Y.S

5. T.S

6. Strain Hardening

7. r0,r45,r90 values


Try Opening the .mtb in Textpad and search for the above mat properties.
