Abstract: Pulsationally excited winds are usually invoked to explain the high mass-loss rates from AGB stars. We present semi-empirical formulae to model the mass-loss rates in different parts of the HRD and then apply these to study the effect of superwinds on the internal structure of the stars and on the evolution towards the white-dwarf phase.
