Abstract: This paper briefly reports on the experimental investigation in connection with the short term behavior of pultruded structural members under concentric loading. In particular, results concerning a W-shape stub column and a square tube slender column are presented. The behavior of these members appears to be typical of the group of members that have been tested thus far.
