### Abstract

In this work we present some analytic and semi-analytic traveling wave so lutions of a generalized Burgers′ equation for unidirectional flow of powerlaw non-Newtonian fluids. The solutions include the corresponding well-known traveling wave solution of the Burgers' equation for Newtonian flows. We also derive estimates of shock thickness for the power-law flows.
