The objective of the present work is to study wake dynamics behind a surface-mounted circular cylinder immersed between two highly stratified fluids in the crossflow, by performing LES. The focus is to evaluate the degree of interference and interaction caused by the presence of obstacles and of the air-water interface over incoming turbulent boundary layers, while keeping the interface flat.
