Abstract: We present the results of time-dependent, radiation-hydrodynamic models of the evolving circumstellar medium around stars with initial masses of 40 and 60 Msun. Our models show the difference that the assumption of a rotating star can make to the resulting circumstellar medium, which is principally due to the difference in length of the intense mass-loss stages. We model the formation of structure due to instabilities in the cold shell-fast wind interaction region.
