The relative inverse admittance is used to obtain the geometry of the optimum longitudinal rectangular fin of a set of fins of the same volume that radiate to free space. With this information a set of new universal curves that permits direct optimization of 1-D and 2-D practical fins. To ensure a dissipation effect, lines of constant effectiveness are introduced in the optimization graph. Examples are shown.
