The paper is focused on analysis of limit states and actual behaviour of the great size fibre cement boards that are produced without autoclaving. In this paper the basic information on the testing of the fibre cement boards are summarized, but its main goal is the utilization of acquired specification and data for the elaboration of backgrounds for direct determining of the defined load carrying capacity of boards for basic cases of loading, span and support conditions. The elaborated solutions and results follow the contemporary approach of the structural design method and reliability verification based on the concept of limit state design using the partial safety factors.
