The finite-element method is used to derive the dispersion characteristics and field components of dominant and higher order modes in finlines. The method is accurate and covers the metallization thickness, substrate mounting grooves, bending of the substrate, and arbitrary cross sections. Results for structures already obtained with other methods have been found to agree well with available data. As a new contribution, the effect of substrate bending on the propagation constant is studied. The dispersion characteristics for the dominant and higher order modes for bilateral finlines in circular waveguide housing are calculated. The field plots for all the modes are given
