Wake-induced bypass transition of boundary layers on a flat plate subjected to favorable and adverse pressure gradients was investigated. Detailed boundary layer measurements were conducted using two hot-wire probes. A spoked-wheel-type wake generator was used to create periodic wakes in front of the flat plate. The main focus of this study was to reveal the effect of the Strouhal number, which changed by using different numbers of wake-generating bars, on the turbulence intensity distribution and the transition onset position of the boundary layer on the flat plate using two hot-wire probes.
