Abstract: We consider an initial boundary value problem for a symmetrizable mixed hyperbolic-parabolic system of conservation laws with a small viscosity $\varepsilon$, $u^\varepsilon_t+F(u^\varepsilon)_x =\varepsilon(B(u^\varepsilon) u^\varepsilon_x )_x .$ When the boundary is noncharacteristic for both the viscous and the inviscid system, and the boundary condition dissipative, we show that $u^\varepsilon$ converges to a solution of the inviscid system before the formation of shocks if the amplitude of the boundary layer is sufficiently small. This generalizes previous results obtained for $B$ invertible and the linear study of Serre and Zumbrun obtained for a pure Dirichlet's boundary condition.
