Mechanical characteristics of Sci-Sport elastic bands during laboratory tensile tests

by A. Manolova & P. Debraux | 8 March 2018

In order to scientifically determine the resistance of Sci-Sport elastic bands against stretching, we subjected them to tensile strength tests in laboratory.

Friction in Ice Hockey: Comparison of different models of skate blades

by A. Manolova | 9 February 2018

In ice hockey, equipment plays an important role in performance. Nevertheless, the contact of the skate blades with the ice generates friction forces which contribute to reducing the speed of movement...
