Julius Duhm studied at the Vienna Technical University and obtained his habilitation in 1930 at the Hochschule für Bodenkunde BOKU, Vienna. Duhm eventually developed into a specialist of forestry and was known for lectures in which forestry was related to civil engineering, such as in torrent rehabilitation or soil conservation. These issues have a traditional importance in Austria, a country that suffers especially from large erosion. Duhm may thus be considered a successor of the famous Josef Stiny (1880-1958), Georg Strele (1861-1950) and Ferdinand Wang (1855-1917) of which all have significantly contributed to hydraulic problems related for land rehabilitation.

Duhm was appointed professor of engineering forestry after World War II at BOKU and awarded the title Wirklicher Hofrat for his works towards the Austrian state. He was known for a book entitled River engineering, in which parts of the sections were written by Rudolf Ehrenberger (1882-1956) and Philipp Krapf (1854-1939). This book is subdivided into the 14 chapters Tasks in river engineering, Hydrometry, Water flow, Sediment in rivers, River slope, River regulation, River cuts, Canals, Construction materials, Dikes, River engineering and landscape, Particular problems, and River modeling. Accordingly, the essences of river engineering are presented over 500 pages, such as 20 years earlier by Armin Schoklitsch (1888-1969), among others. Duhm was an active Member of the Austrian Association of Engineers and Architects ÖIA and awarded a Medal of Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, for his contributions to material sciences. He passed away due to a stroke prior to a lecture at BOKU.
