I am trying to model a spiral wire reinforced hydraulic hose similar to the one in the attachment. I was looking to model it in Solidworks and analyse using Ansys.
- Does anyone have any prior experience in modelling hoses?
- Is there any specific software recommendable for hoses rather than these generic softwares?
- Also, if possible, can anyone with prior experience give any tips on how to proceed about it? I am starting from zero here.
