HI TO EVERYONE. I AM WRITING AN ESSAY ON,ARE TRADITIONAL MOSQUES WITH THERE DOMES IN CENTRE /MINERATES ARE THEY STRUCTURALY SAFE OR DEFECTIVE.
Amir, A dome, any dome is structurally sound if the forces and weight of the dome are supported from below and on the sides by walls and buttresses.
Minarets are different in that they are usually towers which need good foundations, for example the "Leaning tower of Pisa in Italy" was not designed to lean, but the foundation clearly could not sustain the weight of the tower and so began leaning over. There has been a lot of work done to stop this tower from leaning any more and probably collapsing.
