Dynamical process impact on CBC GW background

Nowdays we are able to resolve more and more compact binary merger events as our detector sensitivities improve. However the detected sources are loud and close events, suggesting a large number of non-resolved binary mergers participating to a CBC background. I will present this background computed from a population I/II stars ehanced with a young cluster population simulated from dynamical processes in the 2G detectors (LIGO, Virgo, KAGRA) frequency range. I will focus in particular on the contribution of BBHs that is expected to dominate. Finally I will discuss the detectability of the background with 2G detectors.
