3 1 Control Volume Approach for Hydrosystems Hydrosystem processes transform the space and time distribution of water in hydrologic 5 and time distribution of water in hydrologic and hydraulic systems. The commonality of all hydrosystems is the physical laws that define the flow of fluid in these systems. A consistent mechanism for developing these physical laws is the control volume approach .
