The objective of this paper is to discuss the numerical solution of sheet-metal forming applications using the ABAQUS general purpose implicit and explicit finite-element modules. The three conference benchmark problems of NUMIFORM'93 are used as examples in the paper. The analyses were performed using combinations of the implicit and explicit versions of ABAQUS. The numerical-modeling techniques used in these analyses are discussed. The effectiveness and suitability of the implicit and explicit finite-element procedures for each of the benchmark problems are discussed.
