A38(M) Motorway
The A38(M), also known as the ASTON EXPRESSWAY, is a motorway in Birmingham
Birmingham
, England. It is 2 miles (3.2 km) long and was opened on 24 May 1972. It forms part of the much longer A38 route. It is extremely unusual among UK motorways, as part of it consists of seven lanes with no central reservation, and operates a tidal flow system in an attempt to minimise congestion. Due to the nature of the road, the speed limit is reduced to 50 mph (80 km/h) for most of its length with a very short length of 30 mph (48 km/h), though there are no permanent speed cameras . When construction work of the motorway began in the late 1960s, many late 19th-century and early 20th-century houses in the Aston
Aston
area had to be demolished to make way for the new route

Wolverhampton
WOLVERHAMPTON (/ˌwʊlvərˈhæmptən/ ( listen )) is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands , England. At the 2011 census, it had a population of 249,470. The demonym for people from the city is "Wulfrunian". Part of Staffordshire , the city is named after Wulfrun , who founded the town in 985, from the Anglo-Saxon Wulfrūnehēantūn ("Wulfrūn's high or principal enclosure or farm"). Prior to the Norman Conquest, the area's name appears only as variants of Heantune or Hamtun, the prefix Wulfrun or similar appearing in 1070 and thereafter. Alternatively, the city may have earned its original name from Wulfereēantūn ("Wulfhere\'s high or principal enclosure or farm") after the Mercian King, who tradition tells us established an abbey in 659, though no evidence of an abbey has been found. The variation Wolveren Hampton is seen in medieval records, e.g. in 1381

Boulton And Watt
BOULTON "> A Boulton -1.888189 ) Main article: Watt steam engine The partnership was formed in 1775 to exploit Watt's patent for a steam engine with a separate condenser. This made much more efficient use of its fuel than the older Newcomen engine . Initially the business was based at the Soho Manufactory near Boulton's Soho House on the southern edge of the then-rural parish of Handsworth . However most of the components for their engines were made by others, for example the cylinders by John Wilkinson . In 1795, they began to make steam engines themselves at their Soho Foundry in Smethwick

Blowing Engine
A BLOWING ENGINE is a large stationary steam engine or internal combustion engine directly coupled to air pumping cylinders . They deliver a very large quantity of air at a pressure lower than an air compressor , but greater than a centrifugal fan . Blowing engines are used to provide the air blast for furnaces, blast furnaces and other forms of smelter . CONTENTS * 1 Waterwheel engines * 2 Beam blowing engines * 3 Semi-rotative blowing engines * 4 Internal combustion blowing engines * 5 Replacement by rotary blowers * 6 Surviving examples today * 7 References WATERWHEEL ENGINESThe very first blowing engines were the blowing houses : bellows , driven by waterwheels . Smelters are most economically located near the source of their ore , which may not have suitable water power available nearby. There is also the risk of drought interrupting the water supply, or of expanding demand for the furnace outstripping the available water capacity
