Abstract: We have constructed axisymmetric models of circumstellar envelopes for Be star disks by successfully combining two numerical codes: a non-LTE radiative transfer code which calculates the level populations and disk temperature distribution self-consistently, and a hydrodynamical code. The output of one code is used as input to the other, and the evolving density and thermal structure of the envelope is followed. The resultant time-dependent temperature, disk density, and velocity distributions are used to investigate the outflowing viscous disk model for Be stars.
