Dear Sung,
 
Maybe its the major direction and minor direction that you are talking about. It depends on how you orient your member.

Subject: ETABS COORDINATE SYSYTEM

I am using ETABS version 6 to analyze 29th story shear wall response under windload.
In the ETABSOUT, the result is shown referenced to MAJOR and MINOR axis. Are these just a local coordinate system to a frame element? or Do these mean something else in ETABS?
 
Thank you.
