I have performed a 2D plane strain orthogonal cutting simulation in Ansys workbench/explicit dynamics. I modelled the workpiece as a square surface and meshed with Quadrilateral elements. I used the default conditions in analysis settings. Simulation completed normally.
1] how to check the element name, When I accessed the report, it says quadrilateral elements.
2]Also, how to know what kind of formulation was used to solve this model and how many integration points in the element formulation.

1) In Explicit Dynamics, only linear element are used, so if you know the element shape, you will know how many nodes in the elements.
2) Accordeding to the recommended practices (https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v201/en/exd_ag/ds_rec_pre_str_exd.html?q=explicit%20reduced%20integration%20point), reduced integration point is used for brick elements.
Others please chime in to provide more information regarding 2D elements.
