This paper investigates the mechanism of induced phase mixing, which leads to effective dissipation in classical nonlinear dynamical systems with a fast modulation of the potential. The suggested model can be applied to a classical dynamical description of cold atomic clouds in optical traps. We show that the parametric nonadiabatic modulation of the laser intensity can provide a tool for dynamical control of the effective relaxation in such systems.
