I will present state-of-the art calculations studying tidal dissipation in stars with masses in the range $0.1-1.6 M_\odot$ throughout their evolution. These models incorporate turbulent viscosity acting on equilibrium tides and inertial waves in convection zones, and internal gravity waves in radiation zones, based on our latest understanding of each ...
