In this paper, we construct round fold maps or stable fold maps with singular value sets of concentric spheres introduced by the author [11] on smooth bundles over spheres and bundles over more general manifolds. The class of round fold maps includes some special generic maps on spheres (see [20] for example) and such maps have been constructed on smooth bundles over the standard sphere Sk with k ≥ 2 and connected sums of smooth bundles over Sk with k ≥ 2 with fibers diffeomorphic to standard spheres, for example, in previous studies by the author ([10], [12]). In this paper, we obtain round fold maps which do not appear in these studies with information on the diffeomorphism types of their source manifolds in new manners.
