Studies of longitudinal de-correlation of anisotropic flow can provide unique constraints on the three-dimensional structure of the initial stages and dynamical evolution of the quark-gluon-plasma in heavy-ion collisions. Experimentally, the factorization ratio, $r_{n}(\eta)(n = 2,3)$, is used to quantify the amount of the longitudinal flow de-correlation with pseudorapidity [1-3]. With data collected by the STAR experiment at RHIC for 200 GeV Ru+Ru and Zr+Zr collisions as well as 19.6, 27, and 54.4 GeV Au+Au collisions, we will present the centrality and collision energy dependence of $r_{n}(\eta)(n = 2,3)$. These results can provide new insights into the three-dimensional modeling of the relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
