Abstract: By using the Monte Carlo radiative transfer code HDUST (developed by A. C. Carciofi and J..E. Bjorkman) we have built a grid of models for stars presenting the B[e] phenomenon and a bimodal outflowing envelope. The models are particularly adapted to the study of B[e] supergiants and FS CMa type stars. The adopted physical parameters of the calculated models make the grid well adapted to interpret high angular and high spectral observations, in particular spectro-interferometric data from ESO-VLTI instruments AMBER (near-IR at low and medium spectral resolution) and MIDI (mid-IR at low spectral resolution). The grid models include, for example, a central B star with different effective temperatures, a gas (hydrogen) and silicate dust circumstellar envelope with a bimodal mass loss presenting dust in the denser equatorial regions. The HDUST grid models were pre-calculated using the high performance parallel computing facility Mésocentre SIGAMM, located at OCA, France.
