This article addresses the problems of designing isolated heavy sections that are functionally essential. It describes the two most efficient solutions to these problems over which the designer has control: providing flow and feed paths and reducing the mass of the isolated sections. The article concludes with a discussion on designs that reduce the mass of a remote section.
