Determination of the strain distribution is a necessary step for an accurate design of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices such as micropressure sensors and microswitches. This paper deals mainly with the simulation of a silicon micromembrane under a constant pressure. Stress and strain distributions have been calculated by the finite element method (FEM) and Dynamic Relaxation (DR) method which in turn uses finite difference method (FDM). A comparison has been made between FEM and FDM results and the analytical solution. It is seen that there is a good agreement between these three approaches.
