### Wind properties of variable B supergiants

• Physics
Astronomy & Astrophysics
• 2018
Context. Variable B supergiants (BSGs) constitute a heterogeneous group of stars with complex photometric and spectroscopic behaviours. They exhibit mass-loss variations and experience different

• Physics
• 2008
Context. B-type supergiants represent an important phase in the evolution of massive stars. Reliable estimates of their stellar and wind parameters, however, are scarce, especially at mid and late

### Optical spectroscopy of the blue supergiant Sk-69° 279 and its circumstellar shell with SALT

• Physics
• 2018
We report the results of optical spectroscopy of the blue supergiant Sk-69 279 and its circular shell in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) with the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT). We classify

### The circumstellar environment and evolutionary state of the supergiant B[e] star Wd1-9

• Physics
• 2013
Context. Historically, supergiant (sg)B[e] stars have been difficult to include in theoretical schemes for the evolution of massive OB stars. Aims. The location of Wd1-9 within the coeval starburst

### The B Supergiant Components of the Double-lined Binary HD 1383

• Physics, Geology
• 2006
We present new results from a study of high-quality red spectra of the massive binary star system HD 1383 (B0.5 Ib + B0.5 Ib). We determined radial velocities and revised orbital elements (P =

### Two bi-stability jumps in theoretical wind models for massive stars and the implications for luminous blue variable supernovae

• Physics
• 2016
Luminous Blue Variables have been suggested to be the direct progenitors of supernova types IIb and IIn, with enhanced mass loss prior to explosion. However, the mechanism of this mass loss is not
