Abstract: During hostage release operations the need exists to breach a single or double brick (masonry) wall. The need prescribes a charge that produces minimum flying debris on the inside of the building and a safety distance as small as possible to protect the operator on the charge side of the building. Test walls (double and single brick walls) 3m wide by 2m height were used for testing different charges and their effects due to the different charges. The loop charge was found to be the most promising solution for the problem. The CSIR researchers probe ways on how to breach walls to set free hostages, unscathed, from their captors.
