Abstract: Model atmospheres of B stars irradiated by their companion are calculated using our model atmosphere computer code under the assumption of hydrostatic, radiative, and statistical equilibrium (NLTE). The external source of radiation (a hot white dwarf) is able to change the temperature structure of the outer atmospheric layers of B stars significantly. The changes of the temperature structure cause changes in the profiles of some lines, especially in those of hydrogen.
