PVC Engineering 23 Smith St. Brisbane, QLD 4000 August 22, 2008 Fraser McGregor Professional Engineer Queensland University of Technology 2 George Street. Brisbane, QLD 4000 3138 1433 Dear Mr. McGregor: RE: PVC Conduit Materials Testing I am pleased to present the attached report to the Built Environment and Engineering facility situated at the Gardens Point campus Brisbane, regarding the proposal that was accepted in July. As requested, the report examines - through suitable testing methodology - the characteristics of the specified Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) conduit, in order to determine the Young’s Modulus and Yield Stress of the conduit. This report shall assist in further investigation and research, which Queensland University of Technology (Q.U.T) may undertake at a later date. The restraints of the project included investigating and implementing a suitable (non- commercial or industrial) testing apparatus, which is capable of providing results to determine the Young’s Modulus and Yield Stress of the specified PVC conduit. Through the team’s research and results, the desirable Young’s modulus and yield stress was calculated and recorded. The engineering team recommend that the results calculated through the materials testing regime be used in future to assist further research, if Q.U.T chooses to further explore and examine the application of PVC conduit in engineering systems. We thank you for the opportunity to present this proposal. If you have any questions regarding the report, or there is some assistance that you need in the future, please contact our office at (07)3123 4567 or via email at [email protected] . Yours Faithfully, PVC Engineering Team

Executive Summary This engineering report provides conclusions made on the material characteristics of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) conduit, based upon extensive research and material testing. Specifically, this report details the procedures followed to determine the Young’s Modulus and Yield Stress values for 20mm uPVC conduit. This report is being submitted in in accordance with the report format specific to the Queensland University of Technology, Unit of ‘Engineering Mechanics 2’ ENB102, granted July 21, 2008. The objective of this report is to find the Young’s Modulus and Yield Strength of
