Dear Shahadat,

if you decide to go for Python, there is a library that supports simulation on network topologies, called nxsim:

We used it to build a model for infections in network graphs in which we used changing topologies to simulate different evacuation strategies. Maybe this could be helpful to you. Our code ist also on GitHub:

The corresponding article was published here:

Kind regards,

Jan Riebling

I do not believe a tool like this exists - but it can be easily implemented in Python using module networkx.

Subject: [SOCNET] Looking for a software tool

Hi all,

I am looking for a network software tool that can allow me to check network robustness under different types of attack, both commonly followed attack types (e.g. random attack, betweenness based attack etc.) and user-defined approaches (e.g. providing the order of the list of actors to remove). Do you know any software tool that can of help for this purpose?
