A novel wind-tunnel facility has been designed for measurement of lift and drag on micromachined airfoils. Due to the structural and geometric constraints of the airfoils being tested, the wind tunnel has a 1-centimeter cross-section. This small size allows the use of a 100-1 contraction area, and extremely fine turbulence screens, creating an ultra-low turbulence facility. Preliminary velocity data obtained with a hot-wire probe indicate a successful design, with uniform flow, and turbulence intensities below 1%.
