In soil mechanics, centrifuges utilize centrifugal acceleration to match soil stresses in a scale model to those found in reality.London: Blackie Academic Professional.

Gas centrifuges are used in uranium enrichment.As the centrifugal force is in the horizontal plane and the tubes are fixed at an angle, the particles have to travel only a little distance before they hit the wall of the tube and then slide down to the bottom.The spinning action, called centrifugation, subjects the samples to forces that far exceed the force of gravity.
