The Cranfield-Kushul engine, which is associated with the name of a Russian engineer, Kushul, employs an unusual form of combustion whereby a mixture of fuel and air is supplied to one cylinder of a pair of coupled cylinders. Soon after ignition air is injected from the second cylinder which connects to the first by a transfer port. Expansion of the combustion gases takes place in both cylinders. Development of the engine for commercial purposes is not the objective of the study, but it has been shown already that the fuel consumption and the exhaust emissions of nitric oxide and carbon monoxide are low and comparable to other stratified charge engines which have been developed extensively. The main problems to be overcome are an excessive engine noise at high loads and a pungent exhaust odour. /TRRL/
