This paper presents a model based on spectral hyperviscosity for the simulation of 3D turbulent incompressible flows. One particularity of this model is that the hyperviscosity is active only at the short velocity scales, a feature which is reminiscent of Large Eddy Simulation models. We propose a Fourier–Galerkin approximation of the perturbed Navier–Stokes equations and we show that, as the cutoff wavenumber goes to infinity, the solution of the model converges (up to subsequences) to a weak solution which is dissipative in the sense defined by Duchon and Robert (2000).
