Look at a few reports written by others and see what you think works well. Then follow that model.

Many years ago I bought a 1948 ed of A Guide to Technical Writing. You can order a "newer" ed from Amazon for a few dollars. https://www.amazon.com/Guide-Technical-Writing-Hardcover-Essentials/dp/B003EB1IVM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494370961&sr=8-1&keywords=a+guide+to+technical+writing+%2B+crouch+%2B+zetler

Technical reports, like most other written documents, begin with an Introduction, continue with the Main Discussion, and end with a Conclusion.

In the Introduction, you describe the situation that motivates the document. Why is this being written?

In the Main Discussion, you make your argument, analysis, data interpretation, or whatever you have done.

In the Conclusion, you state your finaly results, the conclusions drawn from the material in the main body that (we hope) address the questions opened in the Introduction.

That's about it.
