Petr Alexandrovich Voinovich graduated in 1929 from the Saint Petersburg Polytechnic Institute LPI as a hydraulic engineer. In 1938 he submitted there his PhD thesis and then was a scientific collaborator at the Leningrad Hydraulics Laboratory VNIIG. Voinovich had gained his knowledge in engineering practice from works in Volkhovstroy in the early 1920s and as a technician at VNIIG in the late 1920s. Until the end of his career, he was associated with VNIIG of which he had been a founding member in 1931. In parallel he lectured hydraulic engineering at LPI.
\
Voinovich was involved in the design of a number of hydropower stations in the Soviet Union, such as in Novosibirsk, in Kuibishev or later in Bratsk. He also supported the large river dams on Dniepr River. His research was further directed to wave hydrodynamics where he analyzed the wave forces on bank protection elements for both sea and reservoir applications. Further, Voinovich investigated discharge distributions in river networks and for irrigation schemes. In hydraulic structures he took interest in stepped spillways, in chute aerators and in means to protect spillways from cavitation damage. He authored the spillway chapter of the famous book Hydraulics by Nikolai Nikolaevich Pavlovsky (1884-1937) and was also involved in the hydraulic losses book by Aleksei Petrovich Zegzhda (1900-1955).
