Summary: New unsplit finite volume centered schemes are presented. The construction of the schemes relies on the finite-volume framework suggested by S. J. Billett and E. F. Toro [J. Comput. Phys. 130, No. 1, 1-24 (1997; Zbl 0873.65088)], and on two existent one-dimensional centred schemes, namely the FORCE and the SLIC schemes. First and second order accurate schemes are constructed. These are found to possess improved stability properties as compared to existent finite volume methods. An application to the two-dimensional shallow water equations shows that the proposed schemes are accurate, robust and efficient.
