Abstract:
This Paper presents a study of weight reduction in an exhaust manifold of a four cylinders, 3.0 liters Diesel engine. The mass of the entire engine shall be reduced from the current 290kg to 260kg and many components will be redesigned focused on this target. Basically, the wall thickness and flanges of the exhaust manifold will be redesigned and reduced to a value which shall guaranties the component durability. The calculations will be made determining the life cycle of the proposed exhaust manifold, checking if no structural problems can occur. The shape and size of the ducts remain unchanged for performance purposes and no material changes will be considered for the new component.
