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.
Uh – there’s an audio podcast about rock-ice friction with Mark Shegelski: http://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/episode.cfm?id=ice-ice-baby-the-physics-of-curling-10-02-18
thanks professor!! this article really helped me in my project on curling 🙂 but i can’t find anywere how to establish the expressions of x(t), y(t)… in denny’s model, I’m wondering if you can help me out with this, I will be very thankful.
you can see the computations from the paper’s page 23 as java code at github or explained here: http://jcurl.org/m2/site/jc-core/0.7-SNAPSHOT/apidocs/org/jcurl/core/impl/CurlerDenny.html with
tee: distance hog-to-tee in meters
tt: time hog-to-tee in seconds
curl: in meters
