Continuing the work presented in reference [1], the present paper gives additional tables for the edge deformations of constant-thickness toroidal shells subject to edge bending loads and uniform pressure. The two papers together thus cover a wide variety of toroidal shell geometries and enable a designer to calculate in a simple manner the edge moments and shears at toroidal shell junctions.
