cmh is on a distinguished road

I am really new to CFD and OpenFoam. I require a solution in openfoam so as to validate a result that I have in another software.

Anyway my problem:

If you look at the Darcy equation v = K * gradient(h)
I need to do this with a free flow simulation between two infinite plates.
The aperture and the surface roughness are somewhat equivalent to K.
I need to find out what v is – then I will get K and can compare it with the Darcy K in another solution.

I would like t know how this is possible in openfoam. I have very little knowledge in the subject and please forgive me if this is a stupid question.

If you could include details like the solver which I am to use, the conditions etc. it would be really helpful.
