The Exhaust manifold in the engines is an important component which has a considerable effect on the performance of the I.C engine. The exhaust manifold operates under high temperature and pressure conditions. Their design usually has to be performed by trial and error through many experiments and analyses. Therefore, an automated design optimization would reduce technical, schedule, and cost risks for new engine developments. This paper deals with the various factors that are to be considered in the design of the exhaust manifold. It tries to explain the effect of various factors during the Finite Element Analysis.
