A new theoretical approach of the unsteady detonation in condensed explosives was developped. The first experimental results presented in this paper confirm that the evolution of the front can be described by the propagation of front-waves, as predicted by the model. It seems, also, that the speed of these waves is a decreasing function of detonation velocity and doesn't depend on the confinement of the explosive.
