This Ph.D. thesis is focused on real-world applications for silicon flow sensors, and deals with the central question: "Is it possible, by using silicon flow sensor technology to realize (mass) flow measurements characterized by long-term stability of performance characteristics, low measurement uncertainty, and high dynamic range with techniques that will allow market acceptance of thermal silicon flow sensors in different applications?" Contents include: Flow measurements with Thermal Silicon Sensors. Full Additive Drift Elimination in Vector Sensors using the Alternating Direction Method. Heat Transfer and Temporal Behaviour of the Laminar Mixed Convection Flow around a Ducted Flat Plate. Multi-Parameter Sensing with a Thermal Silicon Flow Sensor.
