Dynamical behavior of a nonlinearly coupled oscillator system is studied under classical and quantal-classical mixed-mode conditions. Classically, the system displays chaos above an energy threshold. However, upon a partial quantization of the problem within a self-consistent-field formalism, the dynamics becomes highly periodic, pointing out to the smoothing process of the quantum mechanics.
