A discussion and literature survey of recent theoretical and experimental developments relating to flat plates and diaphragms is given, with particular reference to applications in pressure-measuring instruments. Developments discussed include: Effects of large deflections; initially buckled diaphragms; plates subject to plastic flow; analysis of temperature and acceleration effects in diaphragms for pressure measurement. Some discussion of instruments utilizing flat or nearly flat diaphragms is given and an attempt is made to indicate possible fruitful avenues of future research in the diaphragm field.
