In the past years, many transition disks have been detected via SED modeling or imaging. The disks feature dust cavities in their inner regions with sizes ranging from a few to more than 70 AU. The origin of those structures, however, remains mysterious. We will present how our recent simulation results, which include gap opening by a giant planet and effects of dust evolution, could explain these structures.
