What is difference between CSYS for model or Element Coordinate System for initial state

(OP)
hello guys
i have 3d model so that its surface located in ZX plane of coordinate system. if i wanna impart residual 2d tensor on the surface with inistate command, what components should i consider?
I mean if i should consider sigmaxx, sigmaxy, sigma yy or sigmaxx,simazx,sigmazz?
i dont know if i define Element Coordinate System or change it?
maybe we can define global coordinate system and impart initial state based on it it means i should consider sigmaxx,simazx,sigmazz
any help would be appreciated
