Head
Prof. Dr Habil JUOZAS ATKOČIŪNAS
 
The beginning of mechanics as a science is closely related to the old Vilnius University founded in 1579. A course on the mechanics of solids and liquids was taught at the University. The University graduate N.Jastržembskis (1810-74) compiled in 1837 the first “Course of practical mechanics” in Russian. The famous bridge designer S.Kerbedis also is Vilnius University graduate.
During the pre-war years of independent Republic of Lithuania the development of mechanics was related to Kaunas Lithuanian University founded in 1922. By the decision of Lithuanian Republic Seimas the Building Department with the Department of Structural Mechanics was established at the Engineering Faculty in 12 04 1922. In 1997 the Department of Structural Mechanics of Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) celebrated its 75-th anniversary. Associate Professor K.Vasiliauskas, the first head of the department was also the author of the first manuals of structural mechanics in Lithuanian. In 1960 the research centre of structural mechanics gradually moved to Vilnius. In 1969 Vilnius Civil engineering institute (now VGTU) was established. Here staff of the Department of Structural Mechanics, under the guidance of the pioneer of optimizational Structural Mechanics in Lithuania Prof. A. Čyras developed its activities. Under the supervision of Academician A. Čyras 27 Doctor’s theses have been maintained; his 5 disciples have become Doctors Habil : D.Maciulevičius (1969), A. Čižas (1974), A.Borkowski (1978), R.Kačianauskas (1996), J.Atkočiūnas (1996). In the works of Department the duality theory and methods of the mathematical programming in structural optimization were applied. Main results were published in “Journal of Lithuanian Mechanics” (1978-1989). The Department of Structural Mechanics of Vilnius Gediminas technical university has organised international conferences “Optimization and reliability problems in structural mechanics” (1973, 1975, 1979, 1983, and 1988). From 1991 the Department of Structural Mechanics takes care of the international conferences “New building materials, structures and new calculation methods”. During the period 1972-1987 the head of the department was Prof. A. Čyras. In 1985 Prof. A. Čyras has been elected a full member of Lithuanian Academy of sciences and since 1994 he is a foreign member of Polish Academy of Sciences.
 In 1993 a group of researchers from Department of Structural Mechanics, including A. Čyras, R.Karkauskas, A.Krutinis, J.Atkočiūnas, S.Kalanta and J.Nagevičius was awarded Lithuanian National Prize (1993) for a set of computerised manuals.
During 1987-1997 the head of the department was Assoc. Prof. A.Krutinis. In 1997 Prof. J.Atkočiūnas was elected the head of the Department of Structural Mechanics.

Historically, this is one of the oldest departments of Civil Engineering Faculty related to Lithuanian University, which was founded on February 16, 1922 in Kaunas. According the decree of Lithuanian Seimas (parliament), issued on April 12 of the same year, Division of Civil Engineering was established in the Technical Faculty of Lithuanian University. Department of Structural Mechanics was founded in that division (first head assoc prof Kazimieras Vasiliauskas (1879–1957)). Thus, in 1922-1930, it was subdivision of Lithuanian University Technical Faculty and in 1930-1940, it became subdivision of Vytautas Magnus University Technical faculty. In 1945-1947, it was known as Department of Structural Statics, and in 1947-1950, it became Department of Structural Mechanics of Vytautas Magnus University again. In 1950, during reorganization of VMU (Vytautas Magnus University), Faculty of Hidrotechnics was founded at Kaunas Polytechnical Institute (KPI), where Department of Structural Mechanics remained. In 1957-1974, the head of the department was prof. Vytautas Klimavičius (1910-1982). Department of Structural Mechanics was closed in Kaunas on September 1, 1974. During different time up to 1962, there worked: J. Indriūnas, V. Klimavičius, P. Aukštakalnis, J. Baušys, A. Čyras, B. Garmus, A. Kudzys, E. Maksimavičius, A. Martišius, A. Rekevičius, M. Remišauskas, J. Slavėnas, A. Stankus, S. Vasauskas, J. Žukas, V. Kamaitis, A. Krutinis, A. Senuta and others. Later V. Gakas, P. Baublys, I. Cypinas, J. Žekevičius, V. Viršilas and others joined the department. In 1962, Department of Strength of Materials was founded on the basis of Structural Mechanics Department in KPI (since 1993, it became Department of Solid Mechanics of Kaunas Technical University (KTU)).
Till 1970, Department of Mechanics worked in Vilnius branch of KPI, where core of structural mechanics got stronger (since 1961, well known specialist of structural mechanics assoc prof Aleksandras Čyras was vice rector of the branch).
Vilnius Civil Engineering Institute (VISI) (now it is called Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU)) was founded in 1969. Prof A. Čyras (1927-2001) was the first rector in 1969 – 1990. On the basis of Mechanics Department, Department of Structural Mechanics was founded and he was its head till 1987. In 1976, on the basis of Structural Mechanics Department, the Department of Strength of Materials was founded (for a long time, head was prof Algirdas Eduardas Čižas). In 1990 Vilnius Civil Engineering Institute became Vilnius Technical University (since 1996, it is called Vilnius Gediminas Technical University). Both departments still exists. In 1987-1997, assoc prof Anatas Krutinis was the head of Structural Mechanics Department. Since 1997, head of department is prof Juozas Atkočiūnas.
Thus, after having transferred some specialists to Vilnius Civil Engineering Institute in 1974, KPI Structural Mechanics Department was closed. Since then Structural Mechanics Department became continuer of scientific works and history of Kaunas University department, founded in 1922.
There was formed new trend of optimizing structural mechanics research during last few decades. Main attributes of this trend read: application of mathematical programming and duality theory, which is especially based on it, for optimization of elastic-plastic and other structures, mathematical model formulation of structural mechanics problems, creation of algorithms and software for their solution. In 1963,  the first researchers of elastic-plastic bar structures,  supervised by prof A. Čyras, were J. Barauskas, R. Baronas (1941–1999), A. Borkauskas (A. Borkowski), A. Čižas, H. Gylys, V. Zakarevičius, a little bit later P. Baublys, A. Krutinis and A. Senuta (stability, elastic basement). Prof A. Čyras disciples J. Nagevičius, R. Karkauskas, J. Atkočiūnas, S. Kalanta, S. Mažuolis, P. Čyras, V. Dulmanas, K. Vislavičius, L. Lindišas, R. Kačianauskas, V. Skaržauskas, L. Rimkus, A. Sokas, L. Čiupaila, A. Daniūnas, N. Žukas, R. Baušys, R. Kazakevičiūtė, A. Norkus, S. Valentinavičius, later disciples of prof dr habil J. Atkočiūnas D. Merkevičiūtė, E. Jarmolajeva, A. Venskus, T. Ulitinas, G. Blaževičius, L. Liepa and others applied duality theory of mathematical programming methods for structural optimization.

In 1969-1991, department had departmental Structural Mechanics Laboratory, where valuable research works were completed.
Now Department is a subdivision of Civil Engineering faculty. Staff: prof dr habil J. Atkočiūnas (head of the department), assoc prof dr L. Rimkus, assoc prof dr D. Merkevičiūtė, assoc prof dr T. Ulitinas, assoc prof dr G. Blaževičius, dr E. Jarmolajeva, dr L. Liepa, asist. A. Grigusevičius, dr M. Popov, asist D. Gribulienė, doctoral degree student A. Gervytė.
