Viscosity, thermal conductivity and electrical resistance play important role in the thickness of a shock wave. Their effect is to smoothen out the discontinuities. In most cases, we consider shock waves as geometrical surfaces of zero thickness and we neglect viscosity, thermal conductivity and electrical resistance. Shock waves in which the discontinuities are small, are in reality transition layers of finite thickness and as such we should take these into account.
