A contoured configured detonating cord and detonator is incorporated into a member during manufacture thereof. The member may be a rocket motor which is disposed to be broken into small fragments over inhibited areas subsequent to separation of the motor from the warhead. Separation permits the warhead to fly to the target without excessive drag and fragmenting the motor prevents large pieces from falling on the inhabitants. The detonating cord is contoured to the configuration of the motor to prevent stress risers from occuring and thereby weakening the motor structure. Author
