Geotechnical institute include two laboratories:
Laboratory for soil testing;
The Head of Institute – A.Zh. Zhussupbekov, Doctor of technical science, Professor.
Geotechnical institute do scientific research and experimental works, development and inculcation of modern geotechnical technologies, materials and constructions thrigh creation of IP Objects (Intellectual Property), patents, now-haws and its practical realization; scientific, technical and ecological investigation of Projects, Design-Projects and Existing Manufacturing; construction materials examination of under construction and existing buildings and constructions; quality control of construction materials of civil and industrial buildings and constructions; design and engineering investigation works; static and dynamic load test of pile as well as pile integrity testing; analysis of physical and mechanical properties of soil, artificial and natural basements of buildings and constructions; geo-monitoring of under construction and existing buildings and constructions; supervision of board committee of Ph.D. tresses defenses.
Equipment for Static Load Test presented by group of anchor piles, supporting stand, loading and reloading platform with a view of definition of pile type and its bearing capacity; electronic devise for concrete strength analysis IPS-MG4; electronic devise for definition of protecting coat of concrete IPA-MG4; pile integrity testing equipment for quality control of pile (pile defect revelation); stamp for testing deformation modulus of soil.
The complex research of modern pile technology FDP (Full displacement pile) was carried out;
Following scientific projects are carrying out: «Research of construction properties of soil basement and methods of its improvements», «Geotechnical monitoring and development recommendation for modern pile technologies of building and construction basement in problematical soil condition of Kazakhstan with allowance for data of engineering and geological investigation».
