This paper is concerned with the numerical approximations of Cauchy problems for one-dimensional nonconservative hyperbolic systems. The first goal is to introduce a general concept of well-balancing for numerical schemes solving this kind of systems. Once this concept stated, we investigate the well-balance properties of numerical schemes based on the generalized Roe linearizations introduced by [Toumi, J. Comp. Phys. 102 (1992) 360–373]. Next, this general theory is applied to obtain well-balanced schemes for solving coupled systems of conservation laws with source terms. Finally, we focus on applications to shallow water systems: the numerical schemes obtained and their properties are compared, in the case of one layer flows, with those introduced by [Bermúdez and Vázquez-Cendón, Comput. Fluids 23 (1994) 1049–1071]; in the case of two layer flows, they are compared with the numerical scheme presented by [Castro, Macías and Parés, ESAIM: M2AN 35 (2001) 107–127].
