The structure of a steady shock wave in a liquid containing gas bubbles is theoretically investigated. To deserve such a two-phase mixture, a two-velocity, two-temperature, two-pressure model is used, taking into account small-scale flows, non-coincidence of velocities, temperatures and phase pressures, bubble pulsations. The existence of shock waves both with a pulsation and a monotonous structure is shown. The existence of both shock waves having front break-down surfaces and shock waves with continuous structure is shown. It is shown that, unlike in two-phase mixtures of gas with drops or particles, in two-phase mixtures of a liquid with bubbles the behavior of the wave and its structure depend basically on inter-phase heat exchange.
