Square-form, multi-layered nanofilter membranes have been investigated experimentally and by numerical simulation to determine their load bearing capacity versus filtration ability. The effect of various topologies combining the thickness of a load-carrying layer and Si-reinforcement on the bursting pressure has been determined. Based upon the comparison of a performance index an optimal structure could be selected for later production.
