The use of composite FRP pultruded elements in civil constructions is nowadays widely accepted as a valid alternative to classic materials. In the case of emergency applications (as for temporary shelter after earthquakes, floods and all disastrous), the lightness, ease of transport, assembly, safety of use, possibility of disassembly and reuse are key aspects that composite FRP structures can provide easily.
