Abstract: The use of fruit warehouses (as a secondary use) for medical purposes in extreme situations requires appropriate solutions for protection of the structures from destructive external influence, e.g. concentrated hits by vehicles, sanitary carts and others. In this regard various solutions have been developed i.e. patented inventions for protection of the internal spaces in case of radiation, bacteriological contamination, military conflicts and others. Here are also explained the applications of stretched membranes as well as the use of tensegrity structures as a way of execution of protective screens for the chambers and volumes to be used under other harmful external conditions – acid rain, volcanic ash, formations of smog and others.
Keywords: Materials, Surrounding Structures, “Medical” Modules, Extreme Situations.
