Abstract: This work explores a Pulsationally Driven Orbital Mass Ejection (PDOME) model for the launching of Classical Be star disks. Under this model, a combination of rapid rotation and non-radial pulsation modes, characterized by their propagation direction and the relative phase of their velocity and density perturbations, are considered. As well, the orbital stability of material launched by such a mechanism is investigated.
