This paper compares and verifies the experimental membrane device with the model created in FEM software. At first, the experimental device needs to be properly set up and prepared. This includes settings of all input factors such as the placement of the technical fabric, the pretensioning of the edge ropes, the functionality of the actuators or load cells placed on the anchor rods. The numerical model in FEM software was created to confirm the functionality of the experimental device. Based on the results obtained by simple load cells measurements and the load results in the numerical model, it was confirmed that the behaviour of the experimental device coincided with the assumed behaviour of the membrane structure.
