Schematic diagram of the deformed vesicle model: G is gravity applied to the centroid and an internal pressure p acts on the membrane wall. r is the radial distance of any point on the free part of the vesicle model and θ is the inclination at the same point. The contact area is circular, and r0 is the contact radius. θ0 denotes the contact angle, and h is the height of the vesicle model
