Abstract

The aggregation process of granules driven by the motion of water-air fronts in the drying process of two-dimensional wet granular systems is experimentally studied. The fronts and aggregated granules interact with each other during this drying, and a labyrinthine pattern is formed as a result. A qualitative framework of the pattern formation is given, and topological and metrical properties of the pattern are also discussed.
