English term or phrase: shaped charge
Definition from
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.
  • 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.
  • 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

No  Peter Berntsen (X): RSV är ju rätt term, men frågan gällde ju "shaped charge". Detta heter "RSV-laddning", RSV är ju själva fenomenet.

riktad laddning / laddning med riktad sprängverkan

Definition from sweclocker, flashback, soldf, wikipedia:
En riktad laddning (alternativt) laddning med riktad sprängverkan -är en konformad sprängladdning som koncentrerar energin från detonationen i en speciell riktning.

Example sentence(s):
  • Dessutom så använder PG-7 raketen en riktad laddning - sweclockers  
  • En enklare variant är att göra en trattformad inbuktning i sprängdegen och sätta tändhatten på "andra sidan" då man får fram en riktad laddning som i alla fall förstärker effekten markant åt det håll man riktar den åt - soldf  
  • Fullbreddsutlösta minor har en laddning med riktad sprängverkan som slår hål i vagnens botten, medan tryckutlösande minor verkar genom oriktad sprängverkan som slår av drivbandet och kan orsaka andra skador. - wikipedia  

Additional ref:
* Använd en riktad laddning mot...
* Det behövs inte en riktad laddning om det bara är vanligt...
* Varje block reagerar och exploderar när det träffas av laddningar med riktad sprängverkan.
