Question Solving a Two Phase Flow (nanofluid) through a tube

CHUMMAR is on a distinguished road

I am a new openFOAM user. I would like to know whether it is possible to solve the turbulent (Re = 25000) heat transfer of a nanofluid (Al2O3 + water) considering it as a two phase flow through a horizontally placed thick circular tube (20 mm radius with pipe thickness as 10 mm) of iron material which is getting heated from the bottom. It is to analyze the conjugate heat transfer ( conduction + convection ). I am trying to use various turbulent models ( mixture model, k-ephsilon model) to compare the results like contours of temperature as well as velocity and their corresponding plots with various Re numbers. Also I am planning on varying the volume concentration (0 to 3%) of the nanofluid and obtain various results.

Is this possible to do in openFOAM and which solvers will i have to use.

conjugate heat transfer, nanofluid modelling, turbulent channel flow, two phase model
