This paper provides a rational attempt at extending well established linear and nonlinear residual distribution schemes from triangular linear cells to quadrilateral ones. Results are provided for linear advection of smooth and discontinuous initial data, as well as for a nonlinear advection problem generating a discontinuity. A theoretical analysis shows that linearity preserving schemes are characterized by lower dissipation on rectangular grids than on triangular ones, which renders them marginally stable. Further work on the nonlinear Burgers' equation is needed to demonstrate the usefulness of such schemes for solving transonic flows using a quadrilateral grid in the viscous boundary-layer and a triangular one in the outer inviscid flow region.
