In this work, approximations for state dependent delay differential equations (DDEs) are developed using Galerkin's approach. The DDE is converted into an equivalent partial differential equation (PDE) with a moving boundary, where the length of the domain dependents on the solution of the PDE. The PDE is further reduced into a finite number of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using Galerkin's approach with time dependent basis functions. The nonlinear boundary condition is represented by a Lagrange multiplier, whose expression is derived in closed form. We also demonstrate the validity of the developed method by comparing the numerical solution of the ODEs to that of the original DDE.
