English term or phrase: shaped charge
Definition from army-technology.com:
A shaped charge is an explosive which has been shaped in such a way that when detonated the energy of the explosion is channeled in one direction.

Example sentence(s):
  • Conventional shaped charges are constructed with a charge case, a hollow conical liner within the case, and a high explosive material positioned between the liner and case. globalsecurity.org
  • Shaped charges were first developed after World War I to penetrate tanks and other armored equipment. Their most extensive use today is in the oil and gas industry where they open up the rock around drilled wells. llnl.gov
  • This source has been used since 1971 in routine seismic operation in the Amazon jungle with 300 gram unit charges distributed in small and large shot arrays increasing substantially the coverage and halving the cost at a higher record quality. A large amount of production seismic field work has been carried out in several other areas attesting the successful application of the shaped charges. Wiley InterScience

rettet ladning


Definition from Byggelederfirma Gullik E Bråthen AS:
En rettet ladning består i prinsippet av en beholder som ere delt i to rom ved en konus eller kjegle av metall med høy spesifikk vekt og lavt smeltepunkt. Et rom øverst for sprengstoff og ett vantett luftrom nærmest sprengstoffobjektet. Fig 4.

Sprengstoff bringes til detonasjon ved et initieringsmiddel som plasseres sentralt i toppen av ladningen. En rettet ladning virker etter "Monroe-prinsippet" ved at detonasjonskraften blir konsentrert i en bestemt retning.

Example sentence(s):
  • Det 15 kilo tunge missilet har en rettet ladning som bekjemper alt kjent panser. - Forsvars-Forum
