 Summary:
 Why are officially almost anywhere in the world, do not mention the names of Serbian builders and their contribution to the world of construction? Is it because, besides the epic stories and sporadic cases, the lack of a tradition in wealth and authority disables the Serbs to cross the path from the ancient wageworkers and medieval bricklayer to the modern demiurge and so to be registered in the world of construction? In other words, to be its creators, not just less noticeable followers, skilled improvisers or simply executors. No matter what the truth is the presented paper contributes to the perception and memory of its bright side through the classical theory of shells and its application for arch dam analysis in construction practice. Starting from the general equations of the theory of thin shells of double curvature there are presented the procedure of forming the classic mathematical and physical models of arch dam with broader consideration of the accuracy of the assumptions that were done from theoretical and practical point of view. Together with there is also presented an analysis of Hajdin's model of arch dam and an integral equation method with regard to the state of the art in that area before and at the time of its application in local Serbian practice.
