A rocket motor having case segments which are attached together. A retaining member extends circumferentially thereabout to maintain attachment of the segments together. The retaining member is characterized by sensitivity to a predetermined temperature greater than ambient temperature and less than the ignition temperature of propellant material in the rocket motor to lose strength whereby the retaining member is released and the rocket motor may safely be rendered non-propulsive during a hazard such as a fuel fire or slow cook-off.
A rocket motor comprising an elongated generally cylindrical case having a first case segment, a second case segment, propellant material having an ignition temperature disposed within said case, means for attaching said first and second case segments, and means extending circumferentially about said case for retaining said attaching means in position for maintaining attachment of said first and second case segments, said retaining means including means throughout the circumference thereof for effecting loss of strength of said retaining means when said ...
