Abstract
We study a motion of a two-fluid mixture in the vicinity of a thermodynamic critical point using the second gradient theory. We obtain monotonic and non-monotonic solutions describing phase transitions in an explicit form.

Résumé
Nous étudions des mouvements dans les mélanges de fluides à deux constituants, au voisinage d'un point critique thermodynamique en utilisant la théorie du second gradient. Nous obtenons ainsi des ondes de type transitions de phases monotones et non monotones sour une forme explicite.
