The equations of motion of the two-segment articulated tube system, discussed in Part 1, are analyzed for bifurcating periodic solutions near critical flow velocities. In addition to the flow parameter, the system depends on four other parameters. Depending on the values of these parameters the system exhibits a wide variety of behavior. This behavior is studied in detail in several specific cases.
