As the soldier course weakens the base of the dome and ovens are prone to vertical cracks at the base. Suggest that it be replaces by two rows of bricks laid flat if folk want the extra height at the base of the dome.

Brickie,

In American English: spelt =spelled! You can't cover the entire world in Vegemite or Roo poo.

Many ovens have been built with them. A true radius will give you the best strength. What the solider course gives you really isn't that much at the end of the day. I got to admit that they look pretty cool.

A simi-circle. If you are building a 42 inch, it starts at the hearth (0) climbs to 21 inches at the apex (center) then back to 0. It's the best you can get for load distribution.

My apologies,
Actually with the spread of American culture globally, I should have said "everywhere"

Soldier or sailor courses are fine when they are used with the construction method they were designed for. That is to say, if you are using either, then you have to have external buttressing of the sailor or soldier.

Low dome Neapolitan ovens use a soldier or sailor to flatten the roof of the dome and bring it closer to the floor while maintaining workability. They also use a monocoque external shell filled with medium density insulating material to reinforce the dome.
