Cavity buffeting noise is the main contributor to discomfort in sky-dive tunnels. Low frequency noise, generated by self-sustained cavity shear-layer oscillations, similar to automotive sunroof-buffeting noise and side-window buffeting noise, is observed in sky-dive tunnels. Typical low frequencies are not conventionally audible to the human ear...
