Abstract

We present nearly simultaneous optical and infrared photometry of RV Tauri stars. From this we deduce stellar and (where appropriate) dust shell parameters. Possible correlations are suggested between dust shell extent, metallicity and type of RV Tauri stars. Grain formation appears to be episodic, rather than continuous.
