How does COSMOS define compressive strength

I have done an analysis using COSMOSWorks on a steel structure we are designing.

One of my colleuges has asked how COSMOS defines compressive strength of the material when it is not defined in the material properties.

The material we are using is AISI 304, from the COSMOSWorks material library. My VAR has been unable to help with this.

Any assistance or advise would be very much appreciated.
