centrifugal pumps work on the principle of forced vortex flow which means that when a certain mass of liquid is rotated by an external torque, the rise in pressure head of the rotating liquid takes place.

Vortex Flow is also the working principle of cyclone separators.

Vortex flow finds its application in centrifugal and turbine pumps, in the study of cyclones and also in combined flows. it is also used to analyse the eddy formation in streamlined bodies, magnus effect etc.
