Abstract : Torsional experiments were performed at this laboratory with superconducting toroids. In order to discuss the results, knowledge of the expected behavior of an ideal superconducting toroid is needed. Equations which describe this ideal behavior were found in terms of three geometrically dependent constants, namely, the proportionality constants between components of the applied magnetic field and components of the magnetic moment of the toroid resulting from flux expulsion and any net current. Calculations of these three constants are available for toroids of circular cross sections from other NRL Reports. It is possible to estimate values for other than circular cross sections. (Author)
