This paper gives a review of recent results for the reduced Navier-Stokes-α (rNS-α) model of incompressible flow. The model was recently developed as a numerical approximation to the well known Navier-Stokes-α model, for the purpose of more efficiently computations in the C 0 finite element setting. Its performance in initial numerical tests was remarkable, which led to analytical studies and further numerical tests, all of which provided excellent results. This paper reviews the main results
