By special advantages and progress of dynamic centrifugal model tests, construction and development of large scale centrifugal shakers are driven. As one subsystem of a large scale centrifugal shaker, the testing auxiliary system is used to data acquisition, image acquisition and model making. The perfect design and construction of a testing auxiliary system must give a guarantee for dynamic centrifugal model tests. This paper outlines the components and function of the testing auxiliary system of a large scale centrifugal shaker. The basic design requirements and critical techniques relevant to data acquisition systems, image acquisition systems and containers are analyzed according to the characteristics of dynamic centrifugal model tests on a large scale centrifugal shaker, meanwhile, some specific conception and design suggestions are proposed. The results can offer some references for design of the testing auxiliary system of a large scale centrifugal shaker.
