Particle tracking and porous medium filter

I'm new to OF! I'm used to work with fluent but I'd like to move towards OF..
I would like to perform a lagrangian simulation of a chamber, with a particular shape. I want to track the particles within the velocity field, considering a two coupled approach. These particles cannot cross a porous filter which I want to model as a porous medium...
Is this problem solvable directly with the standard solvers or do I have to write the code from scratch?
I tried to find out more about this issue but I'm a little bit confused about how to deal with it. You know, I need to change my forma mentis from fluent user to OF!
I would appreaciate any kind of hint.

both things are possible with OpenFOAM and without starting from scratch. For example you can use a incompressible and steady solver 'porousSimpleFoam' to simulate the flow through a porous region. Tutorial cases can be found under
Hope this helps.
