We study the dynamics of normal domains in a multifilamentary composite superconductor with a large amount of stabilizer outside the multifilamentary area. We consider the case when there is a transition layer with high thermal and electrical resistance between the superconductor and the stabilizer. We show the existence of localized and propagating normal domains in these composites. We derive an implicit expression for the propagation velocity of a normal domain.
