      Which appoach must I follow to simulate the oil flow in annular hose cross area.

      Hi  TheoH

      You can use 'Internal' flow simulation for this in Discovery Live. You can simulate heat transfer using options available in the setup. For, higer accuracy in result you can simulate the same in AIM. Although, in the image that you have shared there is 'Steam or hot water flow'. Through which region is this flowing?

      The steam or hot water flows through the internal area of the corrugated steel hose.

      At the outside of the corrugated steel hose heavy fuel oil will flow

        TheoH You can create two separate flow volumes and assign steam and oil properties respectively and add temperature, mass flow rate etc. to the flow volume individually. Here, I have simulated using air and water arbitrarily. You can add materials in the material library by right-clicking on the materials in the solution tree and again assigning them to the two components and make the necessary changes to the boundary conditions too. Please refer attached model. You can carry forward the model to AIM for higher accuracy in results.
