Department of Building Materials

Predecessor of the present Department of Building Materials was Department of Building Materials Technologies at Technical Faculty of the University of Lithuania, established in Kaunas in 1922. Independent Department of Building Materials was restored at KPI Faculty of Civil Engineering in 1956. Recently 18 experienced specialists work here, managed by prof. Vitoldas Vaitkevičius. 

Department maintains close links with:

  • Bialystok University of Technology (Research of Portland cement  with mineral fillers), memorandum of technical cooperation signed in 2010-2014 (assoc. prof. dr. Žymantas Rudžionis – dr. Marta Kosior–Kazberuk);
  • Riga Technical University (Latvia), Institute of Silicate Materials: participation in conferences, preparation of mutual publications, exchange of experience, assessment of possibilities of mutual projects;
