Dams serve a wide variety of purposes from hydropower to flood control to storage of water for municipal and industrials uses. But when a dam’s useful purpose fades away, the structure itself still remains. Dams come in all shapes and sizes, but contrary to what you might think, the most dangerous dams are often the smallest. Hey I’m Grady and this is Practical Engineering. Today we’re talking about the dangers of low-head dams. This video is sponsored by Squarespace. Visit to get a free trial, and use code PracticalEngineering to get an additional 10% off. More on that later. A low head dam, sometimes simply called a weir, is a small structure that impounds a small amount of water and spans the width of river or stream. Usually made from concrete, the purpose of a low head dams is to raise the water level upstream on a river. This can assist with navigation of the channel by boats, create a drop for generating hydropower, and make water available at intakes for water supply and irrigation. Thousands of these structures have been constructed over the years to take advantage of natural watercourses and rivers. The heyday of low head dam construction was actually in the 1800s when mills and factories often relied on waterpower to drive grinding wheels and other equipment. This was at a time when moving water was the most consistent source of power available in large quantities before widespread adoption of electricity. Most of these old mills and factories are long gone, and the ones that still survive certainly don’t depend on water for power anymore. That means many property owners are forced to maintain these old structures that no longer have any practical use. Or more commonly and much worse, these dams are abandoned by their owner and gradually fall into disrepair. In the U.S., dam safety regulations focus primarily on the possibility of a dam breaching and causing a flood wave downstream. But, because low head dams are relatively short, a breach poses minimal danger, so most states don’t keep track of these small structures. And, especially if they’ve been abandoned, it can be difficult to enforce maintenance requirements on the owners. But, even though they pose little danger in the event of a breach, low head dams create a public safety issue that has caused more fatalities in the U.S. than all dam failures in the past 20 years. To understand why, we first need to know a little bit about open channel hydraulics. If you haven’t seen my video about hydraulic jumps, I’ll summarize it here. Go back and check out that video if you want to learn more. Open channel flow - that’s flow not confined within a pipe - has a very important property related to its velocity that governs its behavior. Slow, tranquil flowing water is called subcritical because waves propagate faster than the flow velocity. Fast moving water is supercritical because waves move slower than the flow velocity. Any time a supercritical flow encounters subcritical flow, an interesting phenomenon called a hydraulic jump is formed. Low head dams almost always have subcritical flow upstream. The flow is deep, slow, and tranquil as it makes its way to the dam. But as the flow passes over the weir, it picks up speed and becomes supercritical. When this supercritical flow transitions back to subcritical flow in the slower moving water downstream, it creates a hydraulic jump as you can see here in my model flume. It’s easy to see why these types of structures could pose a threat to those using the waterway for recreation. Any location with fast moving water and high turbulence can be dangerous to swimmers or kayakers, but the location of this hydraulic jump can turn a manageable risk into an almost surefire way to drown. The depth of the flow downstream of a dam is called the tailwater, and it controls the location of the hydraulic jump. In my model, I can adjust the elevation of the tailwater by adding or removing these stoplogs. When tailwater is low, the hydraulic jump forms away from the dam. This is a fully developed jump that follows the traditional shape and flow patterns. If I send down this piece of wood as a kayaker surrogate, it experiences some turbulence as it passes over the weir and through the jump but, it doesn’t have much trouble escaping downstream. But, as the tailwater rises the jump moves closer and closer to the dam. Eventually if the tailwater is high enough, the hydraulic jump will reach the dam. This condition is called a submerged or drowned jump. It may look fairly innocuous, but this is when things get dangerous. Let’s send down our kayaker surrogate to see why. A submerged hydraulic jump creates an area of recirculation immediately downstream of the dam sometimes called a “keeper” for obvious reasons. The jet of the hydraulic jump surfaces downstream causing a boil point. Sometimes this is easy to see and sometimes it’s not. Either way, objects or people can will only be able to escape a submerged hydraulic jump if they are able to get beyond this boil point. And, any rescuers who approach a submerged jump from downstream run the risk of being drawing into the hydraulic themselves. The recirculating currents that trap recreators is dangerous enough on its own but there are other factors contributing to the danger at low head dams. These currents also trap large debris between the strong hydraulic forces and the hard concrete surface of the dam which can batter someone trapped in the keeper. The water is often cold, increasing the potential for hypothermia and further disorientation. The turbulence of the hydraulic jump entrains a lot of air, reducing the buoyancy of a swimmer. And, low head dams often span the entire width of the river, meaning there is no still water nearby that can be used as a safe haven. This is exactly why the low head dam is called the perfect drowning machine. All these factors added together create a situation that’s almost impossible to survive. There are a lot of ways to mitigate this issue. The simplest option is just to keep people away from these structures. Some states require that exclusion zones be established to make sure that kayakers safely portage dams instead of trying to run them. Good signage and buoys as warnings can sometimes be enough to keep people safe. Another option is to modify the structure to reduce the potential for recirculating currents. Researchers have proposed various retrofits to existing dams to improve flow conditions when tailwater is high. Of course, the most obvious (but also most expensive) way to address the issue is to remove these dams altogether. In many cases they are no longer serving an important role, and removing dams can help restore ecosystems and improve connectivity for aquatic species in addition to removing a hazard. If you’re swimming or paddling on a river with a low head dam, don’t underestimate the danger of these powerful hydraulic forces. Different flow conditions on the river can dramatically change the behaviour of the hydraulic jump, as we saw, so be careful. Thank you for watching and let me know what you think!

The year after its foundation, DAMS joined the International Formula 3000 Championship. They stayed in F3000 until 2001. DAMS were one of many French teams that were part of the Elf young driver sponsorship program.

Aside from F3000, DAMS planned to join the F1 World Championship in 1996, with a car (the GD-01) developed by Reynard, but lack of funds prevented the team from advancing.[5]

DAMS enter in sports car racing since 1997 until 2002 where it helped the Michel Vaillant movie, preparing and racing cars in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Formula 3000/GP2 Series/FIA Formula 2 Championship

Right from its inception, the French team entered the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship, which they won in 1990 with Érik Comas, 1992 with Olivier Panis and 1994 with Jean-Christophe Boullion.

In 13 years, 1989 to 2001, DAMS won 4 team titles, 3 drivers titles, 21 wins, 19 pole positions and 19 fastest laps, making DAMS one of the most successful Formula 3000 teams with Super Nova Racing and Arden International.

The team competed in the GP2 Series since its beginning in 2005,[6] winning races with drivers José María López and Nicolas Lapierre.

DAMS was associated with the Toyota Drivers Program (TDP) from 2006 to 2009, and ran their drivers in the GP2 Series. In 2006, it was Franck Perera and then Kazuki Nakajima in 2007, who finished 5th in the GP2 championship and raced in the last Formula One Grand Prix of the season with Williams. Following this he won a full-time race seat with the team for 2008 and was retained for the 2009 season. In 2008, TDP driver Kamui Kobayashi replaced Nakajima at DAMS GP2 and became the Toyota Racing test driver.[7] Kobayashi stayed on in 2009, and was partnered by Jérôme d'Ambrosio for these two years. Neither driver was able to put together a consistent run of form in the main GP2 Series championships, but Kobayashi did win the 2008–09 Asian championship with the team.

Romain Grosjean won the championship with the team in 2011.

D'Ambrosio remained with the team for 2010, and was paired with Ho-Pin Tung, who replaced the Sauber-bound Kobayashi. As part of an agreement with the Renault Formula One team, both were nominated as Renault F1 test drivers, and the DAMS GP2 cars were liveried in an identical yellow-and-black scheme to the Renault R30 chassis.[8] D'Ambrosio won the sprint race at Monaco, but his form thereafter was disappointing[citation needed] and he was rested for one of the rounds in favour of Romain Grosjean, another driver with Renault F1 links. Grosjean later got the opportunity to move into the team full-time when Tung, yet to score a point after 12 races, sustained a broken vertebra in a racing accident. D'Ambrosio, Grosjean and Tung finished 12th, 14th and 28th respectively in the drivers' championship, whilst DAMS finished sixth position in the teams' championship. Grosjean remained with the team for 2011, with Norwegian rookie Pål Varhaug replacing D'Ambrosio, who graduated to F1 with the Virgin Racing team. DAMS retained its links with Renault, although these were somewhat diluted by the F1 team's new sponsorship deal with Lotus Cars, which also backed the rival ART team in GP2. Grosjean dominated the year, winning both the Asian and main series championships. DAMS also won the Asian teams' title, but Varhaug's failure to score points in the main series saw the team beaten to the championship by Addax.

For the 2012 season, Grosjean moved to the Lotus (formerly Renault) Formula One team, and Varhaug switched to the Auto GP World Series; they were replaced by series veteran Davide Valsecchi and reigning British F3 champion Felipe Nasr. Valsecchi began the season strongly, winning an unprecedented three races in a row in Bahrain, and later prevailed over closest rival Luiz Razia to win the championship, whilst Nasr finished on the podium four times to finish tenth in the championship, the second-highest rookie behind James Calado. Between them, Valsecchi and Nasr scored enough points to win DAMS's first GP2 Teams' Championship, six points ahead of ART, competing under the Lotus GP banner.

The team wrapped up both the 2014 Drivers' and Teams' Championships, with Jolyon Palmer winning the former. DAMS went into the 2015 season with Red Bull Junior Team driver Pierre Gasly and 2014 GP3 champion Alex Lynn as their driver lineup. The team struggled in the Bahrain feature race with Gasly being involved in a fourth lap collision with Arthur Pic, Raffaele Marciello and Norman Nato and Lynn falling down the order after driving into the back of Alexander Rossi and damaging his front wing. Both drivers finished outside the points in the following day's sprint race. The team had an improved weekend in Barcelona, with Lynn taking his first GP2 victory in the sprint race and Gasly joining him on the podium in third.

A1 Grand Prix, Formula Renault and Formula E

In the 2003 and 2004 seasons, DAMS took part in the Formula Renault V6 Eurocup, which they won that same year with Argentinian José María López. In 2005 the team entered the World Series by Renault.[9] Since 2005, DAMS joined the GP2 Series but also the A1 Grand Prix where it serviced three teams.

Driot is one of the owners of the A1 Team France.[10][11] DAMS also managed A1 Team Switzerland,[12] A1 Team Mexico[13] and later A1 Team South Africa[14] in the A1 Grand Prix championships. With A1 Team France, DAMS was the first winner of the series winning 13 of the 22 races including in the 2005–06 season.

For the 2007–08 season, A1 Team France and South Africa collaborated closely to finalize the car like it was previously done with A1 Team Switzerland.[15]

The team joined the new Formula E championship in 2014 under the name e.DAMS, with collaboration from Alain Prost.[16] Sébastien Buemi was runner-up in the inaugural season and champion in 2015-16, having claimed 8 wins and 13 podiums in 23 races. Nicolas Prost finished sixth and third respectively, claiming three wins. In the 2016–17 season, the team clinched their third straight constructors' title but Buemi lost the title to Lucas di Grassi at the final round in Montreal. Buemi also had to miss the New York City rounds due to commitments in the World Endurance Championship and was replaced by Pierre Gasly.

The following season saw the team's final season with Renault in Formula E fail to see any of their drivers win a single race in the championship. Their highest finish was 2nd for Buemi in Marrakesh. The team could only finish fifth in the constructors' championship. At the end of the season, Nicolas Prost left the team.

For the 2018–19 season, the team switched to Nissan and originally hired Alexander Albon to partner Buemi, however on 26 November 2018 Albon was released from his contract with the team to instead drive in the 2019 Formula One season with the Toro Rosso team. Four days later, the team signed Oliver Rowland, who raced for the team in the 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship.

In 2018, the team fielded Nicholas Latifi and Alexander Albon in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.[17] The team secured third place in the constructors' championship and took 5 wins during the season (4 for Albon and 1 for Latifi).

For the 2019 season, the team hired Sérgio Sette Câmara to replace Albon.

Sports car racing

Starting from 1997, Driot's team diversified into sports car racing, entering the FIA GT Championship in partnership with Panoz. Splitting up in the following year, DAMS ran a Lola B98/10 with a Judd engine in the SportsRacing World Cup, winning four races, as well as participating in the American Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In 2000 and 2001, DAMS associated themselves with General Motors, preparing the works Cadillac Northstar LMP prototypes for the American Le Mans Series, FIA Sportscar Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but failed to get any competitive results.

DAMS (running the Bob Berridge Racing Lola) helped the Michel Vaillant movie crew in the 2002, 24 Hours of Le Mans entering with a Lola B98/10-Judd as Vaillante and a Panoz LMP-1 Roadster-S-Élan as Leader.[18]

They then switched their effort to an FIA GT return. In 2003, they tried entering two Nissan 350Z, but once again funds prevented the French team from developing the Japanese car. In 2004, they teamed with Lamborghini and entered two Murciélago R-GT cars in the final rounds of the FIA GT Championship.
