Wire Reinforced Hydraulic Hose Model

I am trying to model a spiral wire reinforced hydraulic hose similar to the ones attached. I was looking to model it in Solidworks and analyse it for failure using Ansys.

  • 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.
