Pressurized thin membranes are frequently encountered in engineering and medical con-texts. Membranes subjected to pneumatic pressurization respond by changing volume and internal over-pressure, and can exhibit different instability conditions. The response is significantly dependent onparameters for the loading, geometry and material. We used generalized equilibrium path and surfaceevaluation algorithms to describe and investigate the parameter dependence in different response aspects.We describe the algorithmic setting, but also give some aspects of quasi-static instability for pneumaticallypressurized thin membranes. Two examples are used to illustrate the methodology and the obtainableresults
