I don't know of any web-sites but I would merely explain that
especially at those frequencies the shape of the loop, no matter how
many sides or a complete circle is irrelevant as long as the LENGTH is
correct as well as the feed point.

I would suspect that the shape of delta loops and quads were as much
driven by physical space limitations as actual engineering.
