Line-blanketed model atmospheres for WR stars
G. Gräfener1,2,3, L. Koesterke1, W.-R. Hamann1
We describe the treatment of iron group line-blanketing in non-LTE model atmospheres for WR stars. As an example, a blanketed model for the early-type WC star WR 111 is compared to its un-blanketed counterpart. Blanketing affects the ionization structure and the emergent flux distribution of our models. The radiation pressure, as computed within our models, falls short by only a factor of two to provide the mechanical power of the WR wind.
