## The chair of Theoretical Mechanics and Mechanics of Solid Environments

The chair of theoretical mechanics was founded in 1921. Its foundation was connected with the activity of such prominent scientists as L.S. Leibenzon, Y.I. Yelkin, Z.I. Khalilov. The first head of the chair was the famous scientist in the field of oil industrial mechanics Academicianian L.S. Leibenzon.

Prof. Y.I. Yelkin headed the chair from 1935 till 1944 and acad. Z.I. Khalilov - from 1944 till 1960.

Corresponding member of ANAS, prof. Yu.A.Amanzadeh headed the chair from 1960 till 1982.

Prof. R.Yu. Amanzadeh headed the chair from 1982 till 2015.

Since 2016 associate professor Yu. M. Sevdimaliyev manages the department.

During different years famous scientists on mechanics, such as the academician of ANAS A.Kh.Mirzedzhanzade, professor T.G. Bektashi, corresponding member of ANAS professor A. N. Alizadeh, professor T. K. Ramazanov, professor M. B. Akhundov, professor Dzh. G. Agalarov, associate professors M. G. Gadzhiyeva, A. B. Mamedov and others worked in the chair.

Among graduates of the chair there are two of full members of ANAS, three corresponding members of ANAS, Academicianian RAEN, dozens of doctors of science, about hundred candidates of science and the doctors of philosophy on mathematics.

Academic staff for the countries such as Egypt, Cuba, Vietnam, Georgia, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan have been prepared by the chair.

At present the chair is functioning in the following structure: head of the chair, candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, associate professor Yu.M.Sevdimaliyev; executing the associate professor's duties M.M. Tagiyev, Kh.B. Mamedov; senior teacher, doctor of philosophy of mathematics A.B. Aliyev; doctor of philosophy of mathematics, teacher G.M. Salmanova; the head of laboratory, candidate of physical and mathematical sciences E.T. Kiyasbayli; engineer R.M. Guseynova and senior laboratory assistant E.F. Gasanli.

The chair has been named as The chair of theoretical mechanics and mechanics of solid environments since 1987.

The principal directions of the chair’s scientific activity are mechanics of deformed solid and mechanics of liquid and gas. More than 10 doctors of sciences and 100 candidates of sciences have been prepared since the moment of the chair’s foundation.

More than 20 monographs and textbooks and over 500 scientific papers have been published during these years.

The main subjects taught at the chair are the followings: theoretical mechanics, mechanics of solid environments, the resistance of materials, hydromechanics, the mechanics of composite materials, the mechanics of liquid and gas, hydro elasticity, underground hydrodynamics, fracture mechanics, soil mechanics, elasticity theory, theory of shell and biomechanics.
