Sharing Experience to Tackle Earthquakes

Uzbekistan is one of the region’s leaders in production development and use of innovative materials in construction. The policy is fairly justified. Given that the country is located in a quake-prone area and considering the effects of increasingly frequent natural disasters worldwide, there is a need to guarantee the best protection possible. Domestic manufacturers and research institutions are working closely to create new technologies and construction materials.

Our country has already suffered a disaster in 1966, when the earthquake flattened most of the buildings in Tashkent. In the years of independence, Uzbekistan has done much to assess the seismic resistance of educational, medical and other institutions. Based on the assessment, a range of measures have been implemented to enhance their seismic capacity. Besides, when designing and building new facilities, engineers use domestic and international experience in the application of special technologies and materials for earthquake engineering.

International studies show that 55-70 percent of all collapses in earthquakes were caused by low-quality materials and construction staff used in building and installation works, as well as the construction of buildings using unproven technologies. Therefore, Uzbekistan has made a clear legal framework the cornerstone that would regulate the procedure of construction of any facilities, as well as quality control of construction materials used in the construction of public buildings.

Today, the country is actively applying international experience, and shares its own practices with the world. So it is quite natural for Tashkent to host an international symposium on earthquake engineering this year. It brought together researchers, businessmen and builders from over two dozen countries to discuss the collaboration in this area, to study progresses and technological solutions on construction of earthquake-resistant buildings using up-to-date building materials.

“Uzbekistan has been demonstrating a successful policy on the use of the cutting-edge design solutions and materials in construction,” Rafael Landolfo, Doctor of Technical Sciences of the University of Naples, commented to Uzbekistan Today. “This is highly relevant because the country is located in a seismically active zone. I would like to mention another fact – the government regards people’s security as of paramount importance. That is why the budget allocates significant funds for scientific research and industrial development in this direction, as well as for large-scale assessment of seismic resistance of buildings. Besides, it is highly commendable that your authorities prioritize training highly qualified specialists, who are able to work with cutting-edge materials and find optimal solutions for buildings.”
