Non-spherical Radiation-Driven Wind Models

  • Joachim Puls (a1), Peter Petrenz (a1) and Stanley P. Owocki (a2)

Abstract

The present state of modelling radiatively driven stellar winds from rapidly rotating stars is reviewed. Various processes affecting the actual, still controversial wind structure are highlighted, in particular non-radial line-forces and gravity darkening, and useful scaling relations are provided. The importance of accounting for consistent NLTE line-forces depending both on the actual density structure and radiation field (as function of latitude and radius) is stressed, and some independent test calculations confirming earlier numerical results are reported.
