### Heat transfer takes place between solid to liquid is known as____________

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Convection

• C.

• D.

All of the above

B. Convection
Explanation
Convection is the correct answer because it refers to the heat transfer that occurs between a solid and a liquid. Convection involves the movement of heat through the bulk movement of the liquid molecules. This can happen through the process of convection currents, where warmer molecules rise and cooler molecules sink, creating a continuous flow of heat transfer. Conduction, on the other hand, refers to heat transfer within a solid or between solids in direct contact, while radiation is the transfer of heat through electromagnetic waves.

### Heat transfer takes place due to ________________

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Convection

• C.

• D.

∆T

D. ∆T
Explanation
Heat transfer takes place due to a temperature difference (∆T) between two objects or regions. When there is a difference in temperature, heat energy flows from the hotter object/region to the colder one, resulting in heat transfer. This transfer can occur through various mechanisms such as conduction, convection, and radiation. However, ∆T is the driving force behind heat transfer, as it determines the direction and rate of heat flow.

### Stifness matrix for Axis symmetriceleement is

• A.

[B]T [D][B]2πrt

• B.

[D]T [D][B]At

• C.

[B]T [D][L] 2πrt

• D.

[B]T [D][B]At

A. [B]T [D][B]2πrt
Explanation
The given answer [B]T [D][B]2πrt is the correct explanation for the stiffness matrix for axisymmetric elements. The stiffness matrix represents the relationship between the applied forces and resulting displacements in a structure. In axisymmetric elements, the stiffness matrix is determined by the geometric properties of the element, such as the radius (r) and thickness (t), as well as the material properties represented by the matrix [D]. The transpose of the shape function matrix [B]T is multiplied by the material and geometric matrices to obtain the stiffness matrix. The inclusion of 2πrt in the answer indicates the contribution of the element's geometry to the stiffness.

### Axis-Symmetric element is______________Element

• A.

1D

• B.

2D

• C.

B. 2D
Explanation
An axis-symmetric element is a type of element that possesses symmetry around an axis. This means that the element can be rotated around the axis and still maintain its shape and properties. In the case of a 2D element, it is assumed that the element is infinitely thin in one dimension, and the axis of symmetry lies along the thickness direction. This allows for simplifications in analysis and calculations, as the problem can be reduced to a 2D plane. Therefore, the correct answer is 2D.
