MEASUREMENT OF FORCES EXERTED DURING SWEEPING IN CURLING
Keywords: curling, sweeping, force measurement
AbstractINTRODUCTION: Sweeping is performed to correct the speed or the trajectory of the stone thrown in the game of curling. Curlers are asked to sweep the ice in front of the sliding stone strongly. Therefore we attempted to develop a simple device for measuring the forces exerted on the brush during the sweeping. The present study compared the forces exerted on the brush with the ground reaction forces during the sweeping.
