Abstract

We study the relation between photospheric and wind parameters of LBV′s on the basis of self-consistent atmospheric models. Our theoretical model consists of a spherically extended, dynamical NLTE atmosphere for the radiative transfer and a modified CAK code for the hydrodynamics. These codes are combined in an iterative scheme to achieve self-consistency.
