Simulation of deformations in the membranes of pressure transducers

  • E. M. Belozubov

  • P. S. Chernov

Analytic and numerical simulation of deformations in flat membranes and membranes with hard center are considered. A simplified algorithm based on the bending equation of a beam is proposed. The equation may be used to calculate the tangential and radial deformations of different membranes by means of the method of finite differences.
