Abstract Inspired by the remarkable performance of the Leray-α (and the Navier–Stokes alpha (NS-α), also known as the viscous Camassa–Holm) subgrid scale model of turbulence as a closure model to Reynolds averaged equations (RANS) for flows in turbulent channels and pipes, we introduce in this paper another subgrid scale model of turbulence, the modified Leray-α (ML-α) subgrid scale model of turbulence. The application of the ML-α to infinite channels and pipes gives, due to symmetry, similar reduced equations as Leray-α and NS-α. As a result the reduced ML-α model in infinite channels and pipes is equally impressive as a closure model to RANS equations as NS-α and all the other alpha subgrid scale models of turbulence (Leray-α and Clark-α). Motivated by this, we present an analytical study of the ML-α model in this paper. Specifically, we will show the global well-posedness of the ML-α equation and establish an upper bound for the dimension of its global attractor. Similarly to the analytical study of the NS-α and Leray-α subgrid scale models of turbulence we show that the
