Kazakhstan interested in Japanese expertise in seismic-resistant construction
BAKU. KAZINFORM The areas of cooperation between Kazakh scientific research and design institute for construction and architecture (KazSRICA) and The Japan Society of Seismic Isolation (JSSI) will be selected based on the development interests of the construction industry in Kazakhstan and Japan, a spokesperson for the Institute told Trend.
Recently, KazSRICA and JSSI agreed on holding joint scientific research projects.
«This memorandum was signed with a vision of experience exchange and development of seismic construction technologies in both countries. The memorandum oversees cooperation for the period of five years,» the spokesperson said.
«Japan is among worldwide leaders in manufacturing of seismic-resistant structures, which is why Kazakhstan and the institute in particular are interested in the experience of practical use of seismic resistant pillars in construction,» the spokesperson added.
According to KazSRICA, the institute is interested in studying expertise of specialists of JSSI in the area of using new materials and structures in seismic resistant construction, including providing building with seismic resistance.
KazSRICA is the only state scientific research and design institute of construction and architecture in the field of effective development of complex construction in Kazakhstan, including areas with particularly complex engineering and geological conditions and regions prone to earthquakes. The Institute was established in September of 1931.
