The oscillating interface between a very viscous fluid layer (which oscillates as a nearly rigid body with the bounding container) and a relatively inviscid layer becomes unstable under certain conditions. The dimensionless experimental stability results are correlated by a modified form of the classical Kelvin-Helmholtz shear layer instability result.
