This paper, as Part II of the study on wake-disturbed boundary layer, is aimed at investigation of the effects of free-stream turbulence on wake-induced transition of the boundary layer under a favorable pressure gradient. Hot-wire probe measurements are also made on the wake-disturbed boundary layer to obtain ensemble-averaged shape factor contours on the distance-time diagrams. These data are then used to examine how the favorable pressure gradient and the free-stream turbulence affects time-resolved behaviors of the boundary layer subjected to periodic wakes. In addition, likewise in Part I, the heat transfer data are compared with the transition model proposed by Funazaki (1996) in order to check the capability of the model under the favorable pressure gradient as well as the free-stream turbulence.
