This tutorial provides an introduction to the determination of mechanical properties of biological membranes and methods of analysis useful in their interpretation. These methods are based on fundamentals of continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, and mechanics of thin shells. This article is intended primarily for engineering and physical scientists who are interested in the physical behaviour and structure of biological membranes.
