Abstract: The matched eigenfunction expansion method is used for solving Stokes flow around a channel bend. The flow region is decomposed into rectangular and cylindrical subregions. This enables the stream function to be represented by means of an expansion of Papkovich-Fadle eigenfunctions in each of these two subregions. The coefficients in these expansions are determined by imposing weak $ C^{3}$ continuity of the stream function across subregion interfaces and then taking advantage of the biorthogonality conditions in both cylindrical and rectangular coordinates.
