Which is why I originally said an IED design to represent an explosive AoE device (ok, maybe not explicit enough in my original description) would have a china hat (inverted) or deflection plate (or something similar) to divert the explosive gas outwards instead of upwards.
I need to sit down and draft up something along these lines. The hard part, imo, would still be how to detonate it - remote trigger, trip line (physical or IR), photosensor...? Don't know yet - need to explore the options. Just wouldn't want the device to be obvious in the field.
