In this paper, we have postulated in a radiative gas, the occurrence of a boundary shock wave, considered as a quick transition region in which the viscous effects are compressible and are confined to a thin layer adjacent to a surface. The generalised, Rankine Hugoniot jump relations, prandtl relation and the other properties of a shock wave are derived and a discussion about the existence of a boundary shock wave is made.
