Conflow is a user-friendly program that calculates flow properties of magma-gas mixtures through eruptive conduits during steady explosive volcanic eruptions. It also calculates physical and thermodynamic properties of magma-gas-crystal mixtures. The attached zip file installs the program on any Windows PC. Details of the model are provided at:

To install the program, do the following:
1) Download the attached zip file to your computer
2) Open the zip file and extract the contents to a local directory.
3) double-click on the file "setup.exe" and follow instructions to install the program.
