by ASME.org

Scotland’s Falkirk Wheel is an engineering marvel, the world’s first and only rotating boat lift. It reconnects two canals—the Edinburgh & Glasgow Union Canal and the Forth & Clyde Canal—and replaces a flight of 11 locks that were closed in 1933. Two giant rotating arms are fitted with water-filled caissons to lift the boats from one canal to the other. The lift is the centerpiece of the Millenium Link regeneration project, completed in 2002 for some $100 million. See what you know about this landmark project in this quiz:
