The previously published model used for calculating survival of Dacus dorsalis Hendel in papaya (Carica papaya L. var. Solo)subjected to a hot-water immersion treatment is extended. The new model allows the calculation of survival for treatments including the vapor heat and dry air treatments. The physical parameter needed to extend the model to these treatments is h, the surface heat transfer coefficient. Measurements of h are reported for papaya in high- and low-humidity environments of moving and static air.
