Can I model a composite steel beam in Robot? I am used to Ram Structural System where it is very easy to define composite beams and stud quantities and perform code checks. It appears to be very difficult to do in Robot. Am I missing something?

Thanks for the response, but I have already seen these threads. They do not answer the question. To confirm the composite capabilities of Robot Structural Analysis, it cannot perform composite design using headed studs on wide flange beams. I would need to manually input the transformed section properties or model the framing as 100% composite. I could not have Robot design a beam that was 50% composite. Please confirm if these statements are correct.
