With the development of the world and human beings’ rush to get somewhere, the need for tunneling has increased. Solutions have been made with the methods of end-to-end elements searched for a more straightforward resolution and visual thinking of tunnel projects that are complex and difficult to foresee. Thanks to these methods, geotechnical problems have been more easily detecting, and solutions have been producing in a short time. Several finite element methods have been developed in line with technology development and research. In this study, Plaxis, Flac, ABAQUS, Diana, Midas GTS NX programs, which are some of these programs, were briefly introduced, and tunnel projects solved with the mentioned programs were given
