This paper considers the thermal behaviour of an array of micro-silicon thermistors operating within a liquid/gas interface for fluid level sensing applications.

COMSOL Multiphysics has been used to model and simulate the transient multiphysics model and calculate the overall thermal flux, the steady-state condition and time taken to obtain steady thermal balance.
