This paper is concerned with the structure of the weak entropy solutions to two-dimension Riemann initial-boundary value problem with curved boundary. Firstly, according to the definition of weak entropy solution in the sense of Bardos-Leroux-Nedelec (1979), the necessary and sufficient condition of the weak entropy solutions with piecewise smooth is given. The boundary entropy condition and its equivalent formula are proposed. Based on Riemann initial value problem, weak entropy solutions of Riemann initial-boundary value problem are constructed, the behaviors of solutions are clarified, and we focus on verifying that the solutions satisfy the boundary entropy condition. For different Riemann initial-boundary value data, there are a total of five different behaviors of weak entropy solutions. Finally, a worked-out specific example is given.
