The efficient method of eigenfunction expansion and point match is used to solve the Stokes flow through a channel with transverse fins. Both in-phase and staggered fins are considered. Streamlines and resistances are found in terms of fin height and fin spacing. Extrapolating to large spacings, the added resistances due to a single pair of aligned fins and that of a single fin in a channel are obtained.
