Olympic Curling Stones Produced From Special Granite

ABERDOUR.—Some stones, with fixed iron handles, are in the possession of the Club, which weigh 83 lbs. Curl ratio, C, was introduced to describe quantitatively the amount of curl of a stone moving with definite translational and angular velocities. C specifies the direction to which a stone is to move at any instant. Measured curl ratio versus translational velocity, measured by Nittono et al. At reduced velocities than roughly ten mm s−1, frictional heat is not enough to melt ice and the friction mechanism modifications to the adhesion shear deformation of ice. Not only she is a decent golf player...
