The content of this diploma thesis is based on the development and research during the project: "Development of the connection between a cylinder head and exhaust manifold with turbocharger" at the Daimler AG. The purpose of this research is the development of a new connection of the cylinder head and exhaust manifold for an internal combustion engine with a exhaust supercharger, with the aim of improving the structure according to the criteria of strength, ease of installation and the total price in the serial production of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The scope of this diploma thesis makes: • Review of existing design solutions for exhaust manifolds of the engine and the issues due to their exposure to high exhaust gas temperatures and loads with the engine running • Review of existing solutions for the connection between the cylinder head and exhaust manifold • Gathering of recuirements and analysis on the connection, the development and evaluation of possible design solutions by QFD method • Technical development of the selected conceptual design "Integrated form-fitting connection" in a 3D-CAD program • Evaluation of the developed design through simulation methods • Further optimization of the design on the based on the simulation results • Timetable for the production of prototype parts and assembly of the test engine
