The source terms of the Baer–Nunziato model involve highly non-linear return to equilibrium terms. In order to perform numerical simulations of realistic situations, accounting for this relaxation effects is mandatory. Unfortunately, with the classical forms retained for these source terms in the literature, building efficient, robust and accurate numerical schemes is a tricky task. In this paper, we propose different non-classical forms for these source terms. As for the classical ones, they all agree with the second law of thermodynamics and they are thus associated with a growth of an entropy. The great advantage of some of these new forms of source terms is that they are more linear with respect to the conservative variables. Consequently, this allows to propose more robust, efficient and accurate numerical schemes, in particular when considering fractional step approaches for which source terms and convection terms are solved separately.
