Abstract Abstract. In this work we introduce a general family of finite volume methods for nonhomoge-neous hyperbolic systems with nonconservative terms. We prove that all of them are “asymptotically well-balanced”: they preserve all smooth stationary solutions in all the domain except for a set whose measure tends to zero as Δx tends to zero. This theory is applied to solve the bilayer shallow-water equations with arbitrary cross-section. Finally, some numerical tests are presented for simplified but meaningful geometries, comparing the computed solution with approximated asymptotic analytical solutions.
