Fig. 3


Mass loss rate during the hot evolutionary phase (including the main sequence, see Sect. 2.2) as a function of time for all computed MZAMS and wind efficiency η = 1. The solid and dashed curves are computed using the V (Vink et al. 2000, 2001) and K (Kudritzki et al. 1989) mass loss algorithm, respectively. The rapid rise of the solid curves is due to the inclusion of the bistability jump (see Sect. 3.2). The qualitative behavior of the curves shown does not change substantially when varying η. The curves end when Teff = 15 000 K.
