Viktor Borisovich Dulnev originated from the Orenburg region in the Southern Ural. He graduated as a hydraulic engineer from the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Agricultural Mechanization in 1935 and graduated as an electrical engineer from the War Electro-technical Academy in 1946, after having submitted his PhD thesis in 1941. He gained the doctoral degree in 1961. From 1936 to 1941 he collaborated with the SANIIRI Central-Asia Research Irrigation Institute and after World War II became a collaborator of the Leningrad Hydraulic Institute VNIIG, where he was promoted to head of the water supply section in 1966. From 1979 to 1992, Dulnev was a senior scientific collaborator and in parallel a private consultant.
Dulnev specialized during his professional career in hydro turbines and in pumping aggregates of hydraulics. He was also involved in the design and the execution of cooling towers and actively participated in the erection of hydropower schemes. Further, he worked in questions relating to steady and unsteady open channel and pressurized flows and contributed notably to problems with a gradually varied discharge, such as penstock flows shortly upstream of a series of turbines, where the discharge gradually decreases along the supply pipe. He was finally also in charge of questions relating to thermoand nuclear power plants.
