The main goal of this study is to obtain the dominant frequencies and wavenumbers related to the main flow structures of a zero-net-mass-flux (ZNMF) jet. For this purpose, numerical simulations have been carried out at Reynolds Number 1000. The influence of including a cavity for the ZNMF piston is also studied. With this aim, the data obtained from the numerical simulations are analysed using higher order dynamic mode decomposition. The method has been applied in both directions, time and space. The results show that the effect of including a cavity increases the flow complexity.
