Periodic Boundary Conditions

I see that periodic boundary conditions are not an option for water flow in Mflow02. I am running into a research problem that requires periodic boundary conditions, but I also need to the utility of an unstructured grid.

My question is, how difficult would it be to modify the Mflow02 solver as a developer to accept periodic boundary conditions for flow. I am doing my best to try and figure this out on my own but any help would be appreciated.

    There is no periodic boundary condition setting for water flow in Mflow02.
    We do not respond to individual version upgrade requests for solvers.

    The Periodic or cyclic boundary condition (BC), is used in computational fluid dynamics simulations. It defines a cyclic/repeating situation of the flow across the boundary surface. For this condition, it is mandatory to select two boundary faces that will be treated as if they are physically connected.
