I'm thinking about a research topic that involves robots used in civil engineering specifically dealing with steel structures of buildings. For example, lifting and placing steel structures.

If I choose to simulate the work of the robot in this area, like after designing the robot and the building, what is the best software that could offer this functionality? I would like to be able to simulate the movement of the robot and its interactions with the building and its material.

Is there a software that could serve this topic? Also it would be a bonus if the software could perform structural/reliability analysis.

By the way, I prefer to work on windows, but also no problem with another OS if recommended. And I have no price limit.

Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to Software Recommendations! Could you please include what OS the software should run on and what your price limit would be for paid software? – Izzy Jun 6 at 11:37

    Hello Izzy. Thank you! Well I prefer windows, but I could use another OS if recommended. As for the price, I think there is no price limit because I will be working from university as PhD student and I think they might have some softwares available already. So, I will see all possible suggestions, and then consult with the IT specialist to download it. I updated my question :) – user134613 Jun 6 at 12:04
