dc.description.abstract We propose a new one-dimensional unstaggered central scheme on nonuniform grids for the numerical solution of homogeneous hyperbolic systems of conservation laws with applications in two-phase flows and in hydrodynamics with and without gravitational effect. The numerical base scheme is a generalization of the original Lax–Friedrichs scheme and an extension of the Nessyahu and Tadmor central scheme to the case of nonuniform irregular grids. The main feature that characterizes the proposed scheme is its simplicity and versatility. In fact, the developed scheme evolves a piecewise linear numerical solution defined at the cell centers of a nonuniform grid, and avoids the resolution of the Riemann problems arising at the cell interfaces, thanks to a layer of staggered cells used intermediately. Spurious oscillations are avoided using a slopes limiting procedure. The developed scheme is then validated and used to solve classical problems arising in gas–solid two phase flow problems. The proposed scheme is then extended to the case of non-homogenous hyperbolic systems with a source term, in particular to the case of Euler equations with a gravitational source term. The obtained numerical results are in perfect agreement with corresponding ones appearing in the recent literature, thus confirming the efficiency and potential of the proposed method to handle both homogeneous and non-homogeneous hyperbolic systems. en_US
