This study aims at deepening the understanding of wake-induced bypass transition process of a flat-plate boundary layer using two types of wake generating objects, which are small spheres and thin wires. Main focus is on emergence of isolated turbulent spots from the influence of the wake passage over the boundary layer. Precursors of the wake-induced turbulent spot, which have not been observed in an explicit manner in any other previous studies, are also of concern in this study. It is expected that wakes from the wires are so weak that an isolated turbulent spot may be induced by the wire wake, while the position of the spot emergence varies randomly along the wire. A multi-channel sensor with 7 hot-wire probes acquires the velocity data of the flow over the flat plate subjected to the wake passage. These velocity data reveal the spot shape and spot generation rate. In addition, the existence of Klebanoff mode in this wake-affected boundary layer is examined.
