Abstract. We prove the existence of invariant curves for a $T$--periodic Hamiltonian system which models a fluid stirring in a cylindrical tank, when
$T$ is small and the assigned stirring protocol is piecewise constant. Furthermore, using the Numerical Analysis of the Fundamental Frequency of Laskar, we investigate numerically the break down of invariant curves as $T$ increases and we give a quantitative estimate of the efficiency of the mixing.
