"A shaped charge, confined or unconfined, is a unit of explosive material with a cavity or hollow at the base. It behaves differently than an ordinary charge, and, when detonated, has been found to produce curious effects of concentrating the force of the explosive on an area opposite the cavity"--Introduction, page 1.
