A unified method of generating models for the flow of granular materials is used to confirm and extend the results of Schaeffer and co-workers [15], [17]–[19], namely that many existing models exhibit linear ill-posedness with regard to initial conditions. A model proposed in Harris [6], [7] is analyzed by the same method and it is established that, firstly, the model exhibits well-posedness under certain well-defined conditions, secondly, that when these conditions fail to hold, the model exhibits ill-posedness and thirdly, the mathematical ill-posedness corresponds to a real physical instability.
