We present a class of discontinuous Galerkin methods for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations yielding exactly divergence-free solutions. Exact incompressibility is achieved by using divergence-conforming velocity spaces for the approximation of the velocities. The resulting methods are locally conservative, energy-stable, and optimally convergent. We present a set of numerical tests that confirm these properties. The results of this note naturally expand the work in a previous publication on Navier-Stokes equations
