Abstract
If designers ask for the dos and don’ts concerning the geometry of membranes, it is hard to give a clear and simple answer. This paper gives a complete overview of the possibilities for the manipulation of membranes. It is presented in a matrix with 84 icons representing the 84 ways to manipulate a membrane. The overview aims to be a helpful instrument for designers and researchers working with membranes.
