The Center has historically become the center of the best Kazakhstani scientists and scientific research in the field of earthquake engineering.

Our institute is widely known for the development of earthquake engineering science based on engineering seismology, dynamics of structures, control theory, cybernetics, mechanics.

Today, the previously accumulated scientific experience is constantly being improved in the institute, new research is being conducted, and the contribution of the Center to real earthquake-resistant construction is being multiplied.

The Center was established in 2010 to coordinate work in the field of earthquake-resistant construction.

The average number of CSOZS staff:

  • 4 laboratories and 10 sectors, staff of 55 people, 9 people have academic degrees.
  • Аттестованных экспертов по техническому обследованию зданий и сооружений имеют — 29 сотрудников.
  • Аттестованных экспертов по осуществлению экспертизы градостроительной, предпроектной и проектно-сметной документации) по конструктивной части — 1 сотрудник.

Director of the center:

  • Экспериментальные и теоретические исследования конструкций (статические и вибродинамические испытания) зданий и сооружений.
  • Оперативное обследование зданий и сооружений, пострадавших в результате землетрясений, техногенных катастроф и аварий.
  • Обследование и оценка сейсмостойкости зданий существующей застройки с разработкой рекомендации по усилению зданий и сооружений.
  • Расчеты зданий и разработка новых конструктивных решений зданий и сооружений.
  • Разработка и совершенствование нормативно-технических документов.
  • Разработка Технических Условий на проектирование объектов повышенной этажности, а также объектов расположенных на площадках сейсмичностью 9 и более баллов.

Experimental workFull-scale vibration-dynamic tests of high-rise buildings

Between 2005 and 2019, more than 60 experimental vibrodynamic tests were performed on the experimental bench:

  • fragments of non-load-bearing enclosing wall structures and partitions;
  • facade systems "Alugal" with facade elements "Alucotte", "Natural stone", "Ceramic natural tile";
  • hinged facade systems "SIAL" with stone and ceramic tiles;
  • load-bearing structures made of local materials (adobe), aerated concrete blocks, finblocks;
  • curtain facades made of chrysotile cement sheets;
  • fiber cement panels of the Japanese company KMEW and many others.

Don't try this at home.

To date, specialists from the Center for Specialized Construction and Equipment of JSC KazNIISA have carried out 17 full-scale vibration-dynamic tests built in the cities of Almaty, Shymkent and Kapshagai.

All experimental studies were carried out on a special experimental stand, which is a cell of a two-story steel frame.

The experimental stand was built in 2004 and is a frame structure with plan dimensions of 6.0×6.0 meters, a height of 6.6 meters and includes:

  • 4 corner columns (K-1) of box section (2Gn[280×140×8);
  • roof and lower tier crossbars, I-section P1 (flange 2-120×8, wall 300×5);
  • crossbars of the intermediate tier, I-section P2 (shelf 2-120×12, wall 340×8);
  • intermediate posts, I-section SP (flange 2-120×10, wall 200×5), located along the outer contour of the fragment.

The structural elements of the experimental fragment are made of steel grade C345.

The floors are monolithic reinforced concrete slabs 150 mm thick, combined by reinforcement outlets with frame crossbars. At the coverage level, at elevation. 6.6 meters, the thickness of the slab was 200 mm.
