Abstract

A new, very simple curve-fitting expression for the effective side length is presented for the resonant frequency of triangular microstrip antennas. Ht is obtained using a modified tabu sc arch algorithm, and is useful for the Computer-aided design (CPD) Of microstrip antennas. The theoretical resonant frequency results obtained using this new effective side length expression are in very good agreement with the experimental results available in the literature.
