Abstract: The fibres constituting the reinforcement of the fibre cement composites are of small diameter and colourless and thus difficult to recognize inside the cementitous matrix applying the optical or electron microscopy. Seven fibre cement composite specimens fabricated applying different methods were object of investigation. The X-ray microtomography enabled the authors to perform the following research applying the X-ray microtomographic technique. The length and shape of the fibres could be assessed on specimens’ cross–sections. Applying the 3D visualization it was possible to present the fabrication errors resulting in the non– homogenous distribution of fibres within the specimen volume.
