This work develops a theory of asymptotic-numerical investigations of moving fronts in reaction-diffusion-advection models. We present the result of consideration of singularly perturbed parabolic Burgers-type equations with nonlinear forcing. Conditions of solution blow-up are formulated. Numerical algorithm which allows to recognise and describe the solutions blow-up is presented. In particular, in order to demonstrate the proposed method, we apply our approach to the problem with cubic forcing.
