This paper describes an adaptive mesh refinement algorithm for improving the accuracy in the solution of electromagnetic problems in transmission lines. A residual error indicator is used for detecting the refinement zones, and two h-refinement techniques for triangular meshes (the longest edge bisection and the regular split) are applied for increasing the degrees of freedom in the mesh. This procedure has been applied in several structures and the results show that the adaptive meshing allows obtaining accurate solution with a small amount of unknowns.
