Abundance Analyses of Field RV Tauri Stars. VI. An Extended Sample

Giridhar, S.; Lambert, David L; Reddy, B.E.; Gonzalez, G.; Yong, David


An abundance analysis is presented and discussed for a sample of 14 RV Tauri stars. The present abundance data and those from our previous papers and by other workers are combined in an attempt to further understanding of the dust-gas separation process that afflicts many RV Tauri variables. We propose that a star's intrinsic (i.e., initial) metallicity is given by the photospheric zinc abundance. Variables warmer than about 5000 K and with an initial metallicity [Fe/H] ≥ -1 are affected by...[Show more]
