Abstract: There are many types of flood barrier, but commonly used are sandbags as it is the easiest to get as well fixed type of flood barrier. The problem with sandbags and fixed type flood barrier is sandbagged will get messy, and a hassle after the flood water has been receding while fixed type flood barrier only can be used on one side of doorframe. Therefore, this project tries to create a new design that will solve both problems by using Solidworks software. Result of this project showed what the effect on the structure design when the maximum force was applied. Some of parts in the invented flood barrier are working as intended.
