In this work we present a new finite volume scheme valid on unstructured meshes for the Euler equation with gravity and friction indeed the classical Godunov type schemes are not adapted to treat the hyperbolic systems with source terms. The new method is based on a finite volume nodal scheme modified to capture correctly the behavior induced by the source terms.
