i'd use HFSS by Ansoft.

it has a spiral wizard which make modelling quite easy. or you can use its scripting language to model your spiral using parameters.

if you understand mesh operations you get very good results in a reasonable amount of time.

HFSS is not a cheap software.
Here in my laboratory, we have two licences and I think it costs about 8000€ for one educational licence each year.

Hi

Another program is Cadence(Spectra), I have used myself. It is very adveanced, unfortunatly the interface is not that easy. If you have used Linux that will help.
