Where is the wood "behind" the shell? How is it tamping the explosion?For Lenin's sake, why the 9-inch shell, capable of penetrating the 20 inches of wood would be half-buried?! She would be just simply buried, while not penetrating through! The whole energy of gases would be contained inside the wood; the damage to the construction would be excessive!
(While I must admit, that the "shockwave" is not the best therm to describe the inside-material effect of black powder, but personally I was quite shocked by this "explosive theoteric"!)
