The report endeavours the materials and design strategies of the construction of a backyard wheelbarrow and research on past designs for comparison to new designs.

The aim of the report is to examine different materials suitable for a wheelbarrow and new designs and solutions for ease of use of the wheelbarrow.

The design explanation describes the outline of the project. The materials used and the effect wheelbarrows have had on people's lives is also noted in the report. Past design and construction strategies have been noted and a comparison of different wheelbarrows has been done. The bibliography shows resources and websites I have used for research. The appendices display photos taken and orthogonal drawings and also a free body diagram.
