The unusual feature of granular state is the negligible linear range of the interaction force between neighboring particles resulting in zero sound speed in uncompressed material. This makes linear and weakly nonlinear continuum approach based on Korteveg - de Vries equation invalid. This paper describes a results based on more general approach.
