The characteristics of a small actuator with propellers have been studied. The generated force increases as the rotational speed of the propellers and the viscosity of the liquid inside the actuator increase. This can be predicted by a simple analysis using the characteristics of wings at the Reynolds numbers where they operate. The understanding of wing characteristics at low Reynolds numbers, which has recently become important for designing a MAV (Micro Air Vehicle), can contribute to developing a small fluid machinery such as this small actuator with propellers.
