Abstract: The aim of the paper is to study qualitative behavior of solutions to the equation

$\displaystyle \frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial t}} + \frac{{\partial f\left( u \right)}}{{\partial x}} = g\left( u \right) ,$

where $ \left( x, t \right) \in \mathbb{R} \times {\mathbb{R}_ + }, u = u\left( x, t \right) \in \mathbb{R}$. The main new feature with respect to previous works is that the flux function $ f$ may have finitely many inflection points, intervals in which it is affine, and corner points. The function $ g$ is supposed to be zero at 0 and 1, and positive in between.
