Porous medium flow

Currently I am trying to build a model in which I simulate the flow of air through a concrete block. I am doing so with the Darcy's Law toolbox. As result I would like to see how far the air intrudes based on my prescribed pressure difference.
However, the difficulty I am facing lies in the modelling of the concrete. I have values for the porosity and permeability of concrete. However, the geometry I model is a simple square which I describe these values to. I do not have a complex geometry with voids. Is it possible to model flow through a rectangular geometry without applying complex geometries?
Any tips would be welcome, also regarding the toolbox I am using.
