Thermomechanical perfection of exhaust systems largely determines the efficiency of the engine boost system. The article presents the results of numerical simulation and experimental study of heat transfer of gas flows in profiled exhaust systems of ICE. The description of the numerical simulation technique, the experimental setup, the configurations of the hydraulic systems under investigation, the instrumentation and the experimental features are given in the article. On the basis of numerical simulation, it has been established that the use of profiled sections with a cross-section in the form of a square in the exhaust system of an ICE leads to a decrease in the heat transfer rate to 5 %. The use of profiled sections in the form of a triangle in the system under consideration causes a more significant decrease in heat transfer, which reaches 11 %. Experimental studies qualitatively confirm the results of simulation.
