German term or phrase: Bilanzvolumina
Hier etwas Kontext:

Dies sind entweder Differentialgleichungen, die ihren Ursprung in der Abbildung von Erhaltungssätzen haben und auch als Bilanzgleichungen bezeichnet werden oder aber algebraische Gleichungen.
Sie werden auch als konstituive Gleichungen bezeichnet und beschreiben z.B. die Transferaten für Masse und Energie, Wechselwirkungsbeziehungen der Bilanzräume untereinander sowie Mess, Steuer und Reglungstechnik.
Durch die Verwendung dieses systemtheoretischen Modells können die Bilanzvolumina identifiziert werden. Dies sind Bilanzräume, in denen die Erhaltungssätze gelten und die somit zu Differentialgleichungen für die differentiell abhängigen Variablen führen.

Bilanzräume habe ich als system boundaries übersetzt (dank Linguee...).

"4.1.1 Balance volumes and equations
Balance volumes
We start developing conservation balance equations by defining the so called balance volumes
. These are fixed or variable size parts of the system over which conservation balances can be constructed."
HOWEVER this is clearly translated/non-native

This one comes from the U. of Denver https://digitalcommons.du.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=15... p.49 The
general conservation balance for total energy over the balance volume is given by:

(just search "balance volumes" systems theory)

I'm really inclined to the opinion though that in general "native English" sources we typically avoid naming the volumes and would write things like "using this system-theoretic model, it is possible to identify the volumes in which... " - i.e. I don't think we have an "official" term for it

balance volume seems reasonable enough.
