Abstract : The dynamical and stationary behaviors of a fourth-order equation in the unit ball with clamped boundary conditions and a singular reaction term are investigated. The equation arises in the modeling of microelectromechanical systems MEMS and includes a positive voltage parameter $\lambda$. It is shown that there is a threshold value $\lambda *>0$ of the voltage parameter such that no radially symmetric stationary solution exists for $\lambda>\lambda *$, while at least two such solutions exist for $\lambda\in 0,\lambda *$. Local and global well-posedness results are obtained for the corresponding hyperbolic and parabolic evolution problems as well as the occurrence of finite time singularities when $\lambda>\lambda *$.
