Does viability work in practice?

Two simulation applications of viability are considered in this chapter. The first is an Active Magnetic Bearing system considered in Section 6.1 in which viability is satisfied by computation of the reachable set for a differential inclusion. The second application considered in Section 6.2 is that of a batch polymerization process in which viability is satisfied by cascade control of a viable controller with an existing PID controller. In both cases, satisfaction of viability is demonstrated through simulation. Some conclusions are made in Section 6.3.
