Musical Fountain

 

India’s Largest Musical Fountain

Apparently a fountain of pleasure and enjoyment, the newly installed Musical Fountain in Gujarat Science City is an exciting demonstration of certain important phenomena of science and technology in the areas of hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, electromagnetism and digital electronics. The sprouts of water emanating from the fountainheads observe the basic laws of fluidics including Pascal’s law and Bernoulli’s principle. Electromagnetic solenoid valves receive synchronizing pulses from the audio system and control the water jets. The music is digitised and the pulses are fed to the solenoid valves through computerized programs controller. In traditional musical fountains, the flow of water is controlled by the varying amplitude of the audio signal, but the musical fountain in Gujarat Science City is responsive to both amplitude and frequency of the audio signal, thus making the fountain dance with the vigour and tune of the music. The musical fountain is a beautiful example of human creativity through the interaction of music and science.

Promising to be a major crowd puller in Ahmedabad as well as other parts of the state and the country, the musical fountain will provide an experience of the magical world of light, sound and water; where technology fuses with fantasy.
