'Aero-structures Lab' is a course offered in the fifth semester of B. Tech. in Aerospace Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Determination of principal axis in unsymmetrical bending of beams, experiment on constant strength beam, determination of shear centre location for open and closed sections, testing of beam with combined loading, measurement of vibrations of beams, Wagner beam – Tension field beam experiments, determination of stresses in thin wall cylinder and finding the buckling strength of column using the South well plot test.
In addition to the conventional tests, students are assigned to open lab projects that involve experimental studies including fabrication and setting up unconventional testing methods to understand the basic concepts of thin walled member behavior.
