I encountered for the first time in my career an issue with a swimming pool. I never designed one so far. I was wondering if there is any specific code by the ACI on this matter. I would assume that ACI 318 and the IBC should be the default codes to refer to. The actual problem was with rebar being too close to the surface and moisture went through, so now we see rust coming out. The swimming pool is used with saline water to emulate seawater, but I think that should not be an issue, and I say that thinking that if the proper coverage was applied, there should be no problem for any type of water (saltwater or chlorinated) to cause rust to the rebar. The location of the rebar is about 3/4" from the surface of the water at those two locations, which is definitely not ok with the ACI 318, to begin with. Please advise if there is any other code I should refer to. Thanks

Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
