## What is/are Circular Membranes?

Circular Membranes - The device consists of a pair of circular membranes coupled together with an elastic beam.^{[1]}The closed-form solution of circular membranes subjected to gas pressure loading plays an extremely important role in technical applications such as characterization of mechanical properties for freestanding thin films or thin-film/substrate systems based on pressured bulge or blister tests.

^{[2]}The results show that the appearance of the wrinkles in circular membranes does not rely on the Poisson’s effect, although the value of Poisson’s ratio and the geometric dimensions have great influence on the wrinkling patterns.

^{[3]}The model builds around device placement at arbitrary positions on circular membranes, which itself acts as a transducer between pressure and surface strain.

^{[4]}9 different radii of PMUT circular membranes are made for comparison, which exhibits extremely high quality factor of up to 600 in the air and large peak displacement of up to 52nm/V around 5.

^{[5]}A boundary-condition perturbation theory for the acoustic vibrations of nearly circular membranes was developed by Lord Rayleigh more than a century ago.

^{[6]}The paper discusses some questions of equilibrium, stability and shape optimization of circular membranes with arbitrary profile along the meridian.

^{[7]}In this work, we have chosen a simple system in which contact mechanics of two inflated membranes (initially flat circular membranes parallelly placed, fixed circumferentially and pressurized in opposite direction to make contact) has been studied.

^{[8]}This approach allows for an analytical study of hydrodynamic forces on circular membranes as a function of their curvature, shedding light on the added mass effect associated with the inertia of the fluid.

^{[9]}Different membrane configurations including rectangular parallel membranes, perforated cylinder with circular membranes, perforated group of cylinders with circular membranes, and perforated cylinder with curved rectangular membranes were compared in terms of water vapor removal from humid air while connecting all membrane configurations to 47-mm vacuum port.

^{[10]}Then, different CMUT single cells with square and circular membranes were fabricated using a standard sacrificial release process.

^{[11]}Moreover, we simulate the nanoindentation for circular membranes of different radii and determine the threshold layer of the nanoindentation theory.

^{[12]}The objective of this paper is to construct an efficient model to simulate and study the instability phenomena of circular membranes.

^{[13]}Six batches, with a total of 60 cantilevers and 60 double- clamped beams, and three batches, with a total of 1500 circular membranes, have been fabricated on commercially available, 45 um Kapton® polyimide sheets coated with a 35um copper layer.

^{[14]}For the half-circular membranes based fiber with optimized parameters, the attenuation coefficients of fundamental modes are below 10 dB m−1, the birefringence is above 10−4 and the group velocity dispersion values are lower than 60 ps THz−1 m−1 within the frequency bandwidths of 0.

^{[15]}pMUTs are designed with octagonal and circular membranes.

^{[16]}In this study, we investigate the extended sequential limit analysis for clamped circular membranes involving large deformation subjected to pressure load.

^{[17]}It consists of two identical tensioned circular membranes with fixed boundary.

^{[18]}The MEMS is made of a Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducer (CMUT) chip composed of circular membranes array.

^{[19]}Therefore, in this paper we have provided experimental evidence of dependence of conductive heat losses in membrane based MEMS hot-film flow sensors on MHR by using eight MEMS hot-film flow sensors, fabricated in a 1 µm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) CMOS foundry, that are thermally isolated by square and circular membranes.

^{[20]}A method for assessing the mechanical strength of circular membranes has been developed.
