In this case, the slab should rest on the downstand beam without any bond (see Figure 1).
First, assign the member type 'Beam' to the downstand beam because the rib is not effective here due to the missing joint.
To implement the non-linearity 'Only Transfer of Compression Forces in Z-Direction', you can use the 'Line Release' function. In this case, all forces and moments must be activated, that is, released, within the 'New Line Release Type' dialog box. Moreover, for uz, the non-linearity "Fixed if vz Is Positive" must be set, see Figure 2.
The line of the member within the corresponding area should be selected as a line to be released, and the corresponding surface like a released object.
