Summary

There are many possible applications of chaotic motion, including both industrial equipment and domestic appliances. Some industrial equipment and some domestic appliances have successfully employed chaotic motion to significantly improve their performance. In this chapter, various promising applications of chaotic motion, including compaction, mixing, washing, heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC), and grinding, are unveiled and elaborated. Compaction is one of the most important operations in civil and geotechnical engineering. Commercial and domestic washing machines are among the most energy-consuming devices. There are two major kinds of washing machine, namely the clothes-washer and the dishwasher. Grinding is one of the most important operations in production and manufacturing engineering. It is performed by abrasive particles removing unwanted material to attain the desired geometric and surface properties.
