A new one-dimensional rotating stellar evolution model was developed which, distinct from its previous counterparts based on a conservative rotation case or a "shellular rotation" case, made no special assumptions on the distribution of angular velocity inside a rotating star. The results of the evolutionary calculations are presented and compared with the results of previous studies.

Key words: stars: evolution -- stars: rotation -- stars: Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) and C-M diagrams
