Default Soviet demolition charges

I'm working with a story involving 18kg (~40lbs) of Tol. Can anybody advise me as to just how destructive this amount of explosives would be when stuffed in a crack in the foundation (stone and concrete?) of a stout (brick and stone masonry construction) 2 story (European 1 story) building?

My thought is that it would be enough to put a hole in the foundation but not nearly enough to cause any significant damage to the building (=few if any casualties from upper floor).

As always, I appreciate any insight.

Forgot to add: As I understand it Tol is for all intents and purposes equivalent to TNT.
