Use of Sheet Molding Compound for Intake Manifold- combined with – Rocker Cover in DI Diesel Engines 2006-01-0002

The paper describes a first-of-its-kind attempt of authors to develop an intake manifold - combined with - rocker cover (IMCRC) in sheet molding compound (SMC) for 3 L and 4 L direct injection diesel engines with power ratings 75 kW and 92 kW respectively. The objective was to reduce overall engine weight, noise and cost. The intake manifold is designed to withstand absolute boost pressures of more than 2 bar, temperature in the range of 160 °C. and capable of carrying load of directly attached components such as an air intake pipe. It is worth to note that the designed SMC component always remains in the vicinity of the exhaust manifold by virtue of base engine layout constraint. The development if successful can expand the horizon of SMC in diesel engine application.
