This work discusses the choice of a reference frame for beam section stiffness properties. Established concepts as the center of elasticity, the center of stiffness and the center of compliance are discussed and contextualized. An interpretation of univocally defined generalized strain transformations is given in terms of minimization of appropriate norms of the stiffness and compliance matrices of the beam section that univocally define special reference points. Transformations of generalized strain perturbations that preserve the angular strain are sought. They are subsequently constrained to represent a change of reference point, and further restricted to lie in the plane of the section. Each transformation is univocally defined and given a clear mathematical and geometrical interpretation. It is recognized that transformations that decouple forces and linear strains from moments and angular strains cannot be described as a mere change of reference point.
