Toroidal describes something which resembles or relates to a torus or toroid:

  • Torus
  • Toroid, a doughnut-shaped object which resembles a torus
  • Toroidal inductors and transformers, a type of electrical device
  • Toroidal and poloidal, directions in magnetohydrodynamics
  • Toroidal polyhedron
  • Toroidal ring model
  • Toroidal coordinates, a three-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system
  • Toroidal engine, an internal combustion engine with pistons that rotate within a toroidal space
  • Toroidal transmission, toroidal shaped rollers that engage against each other in an infinitely variable manner to provide automatic transmission from engine to drive train
  • Toroidal graph, a graph whose vertices can be placed on a torus such that no edges cross
  • Toroidal reflector, a parabolic reflector which has a different focal distance depending on the angle of the mirror
  • Vortex ring, also known as a toroidal vortex; a toroidal flow in fluid mechanics
  • Grid network, known as a toroidal network when an n-dimensional grid network is connected circularly in more than one dimension
