This paper presents the research on theestimation of macrostructure parameters in accordance with the dominated fibresorientation. During experimental tests established the relations of physicaland mechanical characteristics with structural parameters of rigid mineral woolproducts (with different structure). Determined that compressive stress ofmineral wool slabs could be predicted by using macrostructure parameters andother (density, organic content) characteristics.
