Drag Connection Based on AISC 360-05 & AISC 341-05

Drag loads are due to lateral (horizontal) loads generated in high-wind or seismic events. These loads are generated within the structure and transferred into load carrying elements (like drag strut trusses, shear walls or roof diaphragms) which then transfer the loads to the foundation and then safely into the ground.
