In this paper we address the modeling of incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the port-Hamiltonian framework. Such model not only allows describing the energy dissipation due to viscous effects but also incorporates the non-zero energy exchange through the boundary of the spatial domain for generic boundary conditions. We present in this work the coordinate-free representations of this port-Hamiltonian model using both exterior calculus and vector calculus as well as their corresponding coordinate-based descriptions.
