Simulating Router Link Removal

I am trying to do a small simulation in which there are three-four routers. Initially I setup some traffic between them using some link capacity of the lines between the routers and after that, I want to cut out one of the links and observe the traffic flow. Is this possible using any tool?

Powering down a in the middle or unplugging them does the job.

Alternatively use ifconfig to reconfigure an interface.
