This thesis provides a comprehensive research of both the mechanics and thermodynamics of suspended two-dimensional (2D) membranes, such as tunable mechanical resonance, membrane deformation, heat transport, phonon scattering, and energy dissipation. These characteristics make nanomechanical resonators, made of a suspended 2D membrane, promising candidates for both fundamental studies and engineering applications. This thesis is composed of eight chapters in total.
