Abstract

We present two applications of chaos control techniques that can be of importance in mechanical systems. First, we apply chaos control to select a desired sequence of impacts in a map that captures the universal properties of impact oscillators near grazing. Next we describe a targeting method that can significantly reduce the chaotic transients that precede stabilization when these control methods are used.
