Dynamic mode decomposition (DMD) has been used for numerical and video data analysis in fluid flows. Despite of its advantages, we have noticed some issues in the DMD methodology: (a) Although the number N of snapshots used to compute the dynamic modes is a fundamental parameter, there is not a systematic procedure to set it; (b) The number N may vary along the simulation; (c) In the case of two-phase flows the investigation of the phase interface preservation in the dynamic modes has not been considered in previous works. In this paper, we address these issues using two-phase flow videos (slug and stratified) recorded as a case study.
