Hi Irham,

> So why the evolution of this star can not reach Wolf-Rayet phase?

As Frank has been urging you, please take a bit and think through the
structure of your stellar model.

You have a ~10 Msun H envelope on top of a ~10 Msun He core.  Do you
expect an object with this structure to manifest as a WR star?  Why or
why not?

What choices in your stellar modeling strongly influence the structure
of your star?  Have you compared your models and your modeling
assumptions to other single star WR calculations in the literature?
