ABSTRACT Recently, it is inevitable to use numerical analysis methods for several geotechnical engineering problems solution
due to the complexity of behavior characteristics of soil medium. In this study, numerical analysis methods that are used to obtain
numerical analysis programs for modelling and designing geotechnical engineering projects are investigated and shortly
explained. The factors that are effecting the numerical analysis solution are summarized and advantages, limitations and
applicability conditions according to the geotechnical structures are evaluated with a holistic view.  
KEYWORDS Geotechnical engineering, geotechnical design, design programs, numerical analysis, numerical modeling.
