The consistent treatment of the physical problem describing a dust forming circumstellar shell yields, besides the time variation of the hydrodynamic and thermodynamic shell structure, also the temporal evolution of the grain-size distribution function. We discuss the influence of the dynamical behavior of corresponding dust shell models on the resulting infrared light curves, brightness distributions, and CO infrared line profiles. Some remarks on the grain-size distribution are also given.
