The computational studies of chaos control is represented through Figures 1 which showcases the Poincare surface of section of the spin orbit dynamics of Enceladus without control term while figure 2 exhibits the Poincare surface of section including the control term.
The section B with the greater diameter of the end cap (12) is so designed that it cannot be inserted into the inside of the housing (10); in fact the diameter of section B corresponds to the outside diameter of the housing (10), so that the shell surface of section B aligns with the shell surface of the housing (10).
However, another method is to produce a surface of section, also called a Poincare map.
The equations of motion can be integrated with the same starting conditions to generate a surface of section by plotting the values of x and x whenever y = 0 with y > 0 (Fig.

Slices were cut and ground to give 2 mm thick sheets whose plane was perpendicular to the outer surface of section B.
Finally, a set of three 2 mm thick dumbbell (type 2) test pieces was prepared from a slice cut parallel to and including the outer surface of section B.
A strip of rubber from the central layer of sections B and E was cut out and samples taken at the following distances from the external surface of section B: Sample: s w x y z Distance, mm: 0 20 50 200 250
