Faraday instability on a network
MetadataShow full item record
Faraday waves are generated at the air/liquid interface inside an array of square cells. As the free surface inside each cell is destabilizing due to the oscillations, the shape of the free surface is drastically changing. Depending on the value of the frequency $f$ of oscillations, different patterns are observed inside each cell. For well defined $f$ values, neighboring cells are observed to interact and a general organization is noticed. In such a situation, initially disordered structures lead to a general pattern covering the entire liquid pool and a spatial order appears all over the cell array. This abstract is related to a ﬂuid dynamics video for the gallery of fluid motion 2009.
