Results of extensive numerical studies of simple linearly tapered radiating fins are presented in a novel design-oriented manner. A noniterative optimization procedure is made possible by this presentation scheme. The optimization of fin geometry allows for consideration of associated structure whose weight depends on the fin length. The importance of considering this structure in selecting fin geometry is demonstrated.
