Hi guys :D
 
A shaped charge is a device capable of focusing the energy of an explosion in one point, this makes it capable of piercing many inches of steel without needing a lot of explosives.
This kind of explosive charge was first used in the second world war as a anti-tank weapon.
The effect that describes the focusing of the explosion's energy by a hollow or void cut was discovered by Mr Edward E. Munroe.
 
In this video you can learn more about explosions, shaped charges, the Munroe effect, shock waves and waves.
