... Δ S mix . The First Law of Thermodynamics, as stated by Julius von Mayer, James Joule, and Hermann von Helmholtz in the 1840s, states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Therefore, it is called the Law of Conservation of Energy. This law means that the total energy of an isolated...

The SCC failures were reported in India, where they occurred in brass cartridge cases during the rainy season (and were thus later characterized by the descriptive term “season cracking”). The root cause of the failures was traced...
