Curling Scientific

The paper is a bit shaky and has some errors but still it’s better than nothing and has some points in it:

Curling Scientific – a paper on curling rock collission dynamics.

P.S.: The wordpress blog-posting is from 2011 but I back-dated it to reflect the article’s date.

Flattr this!
