The methods developed in some earlier work are combined in order to treat the structure of weak shocks in which the effects of viscous and relaxational broadening are comparable. When only terms up to the second order in the shock strength are considered, the problem can be reduced to the solution of a single first order differential equation. Approximate solutions for large and small relaxation times and some instances of numerical solutions are given.
