This research presents an experimental study on the Faraday instability in one-dimensional cells filled with a mixture of water and glycerol, and for a range forcing frequency between 10 and 60 Hz. It showed that for a particular forcing frequency, whose value depends on the width of the cell, an anomalous surface oscillation arises, that appears as a large wavelength mode oscillating subharmonically with respect to the normal modes predicted by the linear stability analysis. Since all others studied forcing frequency, the observed modes are in agreement with the ones theoretically predicted.
Key words: Faraday Instability, non-linear dynamics
