Abstract: This is the second volume of a two-volume report dealing with experimental and theoretical results from the scattering of light by deformed liquid droplets and droplets with inclusions. With improved instrumentation and computer technologies available, researchers are able to employ two-dimensional angular optical scattering (TAOS) as a tool for analyzing such particle systems, and this could find application in industrial, occupational, and military aerosol measurements. In this report we present numerically calculated spatial light-scattering data from various droplet morphologies, which may be produced with a vibrating-orifice-type droplet generator. We describe characteristic features of the theoretical data and compare these to the experimental results given in volume I of this report.
