Simple and efficient numerical methods are developed to analyze the electrical properties of finite length microstrip transmission lines of arbitrary cross section embedded in various dielectric layers. The conducting lines are modeled by planar triangular patches chosen primarily because of their ability to conform to any geometrical surface or boundary. A piece-wise constant charge representation in conjunction with the method of moments is used to calculate the surface charge distribution on these lines. Various electrical parameters such as the capacitance and inductance are also computed for a variety of geometries and compared with other available data.
