Description:

A variation of a classical fluid dynamics experiment on Faraday waves is motivated by interest in understanding pattern formation on time-dependent domains. In the classical studies, a fluid layer when vibrated vertically will generate standing waves known as Faraday waves. To investigate the effect of a time-varying domain on Faraday waves, a vibrating fluid container with dimensions which can be controlled in a time-dependent fashion was designed and constructed. This thesis covers the design of an experimental apparatus and the application of a measurement technique for use in future studies.
