Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) is applied on a two-dimensional setup, for a transversely oscillating cylinder moving perpendicular to the free stream. The results obtained from the vortex shedding simulations of a stationary and transversely oscillating cylinder are benchmarked against literature [1][3], the simulation on which DMD is preformed is simulated at Reynolds number Re = 200, the cylinder is oscillating at frequency f = 0.14 and Amplitude A = 0.5. DMD is used to capture the coherent modes and their corresponding frequencies present in the flow. The DMD code developed is validated with literature [2]. The results from the moving mesh are interpolated to a background mesh that is stationary, DMD is performed on the data that is interpolated onto the background mesh at every time-step. After the application of DMD, it is observed that the dominant frequencies present in the flow are captured. This study serves as a proof-of-concept study for application of DMD on a non-stationary mesh.
