Nonlinear Tunnel Analysis Program

TUNA plus is the NATM (New Austrian Tunneling Method) tunnel analysis program which is specially designed to be used for practicing engineers in the fields of tunnel design, construction, or supervising.   TUNA plus has fully automated built-in pre, main, and post processors so that users having no numerical analysis background can analyze NATM tunnels.
