Embodiments for cooling a turbine of an engine are provided. In one example embodiment, an internal combustion engine comprises a turbocharger including a turbine having a coolant jacket integrated in a housing of the turbine, and an oil circuit coupled to the coolant jacket of the turbine. By cooling the turbine with the oil circuit, the turbine may be constructed from less-heat resistant materials.
1. A method for cooling a turbine of an internal combustion engine, comprising: routing engine oil via an oil circuit to the turbine;increasing a temperature of the engine oil prior to reaching the turbine; androutine engine oil from the turbine to a coolant jacket on an inlet side of a cylinder head, the inlet side of the cylinder head being exclusively oil-cooled. 2. The method of claim 1, wherein the turbine is integrated in the cylinder head of the engine. 3. The method of claim 2, further comprising routing the engine oil from the inlet-side coolant...
