The engineering method for calculating shearing forces in bending, proposed by D. I. Zhuravskii, is the first important contribution by a native scientist to the sci-ence of strength of materials. In our country only D. I. Zhuravskii is mentioned in connection with the technical theory of shearing stresses. Outside of the country his name is on a par with the names of W. J. Rankin, J. Bress and F. Grashof. The proposed article traces the history of the theory basing upon the primary sources and clarifies the occurrence time of historical views accepted in our country.
