  1. Abstract We introduce a new regularization model for incompressible fluid flow, which is a regularization of the EMAC (energy, momentum, and angular momentum conserving) formulation of the Navier–Stokes equations (NSE) that we call EMAC-Reg. The EMAC formulation has proved to be a useful formulation because it conserves energy, momentum, and angular momentum even when the divergence constraint is only weakly enforced. However, it is still a NSE formulation and so cannot resolve higher Reynolds number flows without very fine meshes. By carefully introducing regularization into the EMAC formulation, we create a model more suitable for coarser mesh computations but that still conserves the same quantities as EMAC, i.e., energy, momentum, and angular momentum. We show that EMAC-Reg, when semi-discretized with a finite element spatial discretization is well-posed and optimally accurate. Numerical results are provided that show EMAC-Reg is a robust coarse mesh model.
