Leopold Müller obtained his civil engineering diploma from the Technical University of Vienna, where he also submitted a PhD thesis on statistical measurements of clefts. He started the career with the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse, a well known pass street across the Tauern Alps. After return from war prison, Müller continued works for the Kaprun hydropower plants and thus was confronted with problems relating to rock mechanics. A small number of specialists founded in 1951 under the initiative of Müller the Salzburger Kreis which turned in 1962 into the International Association of Rock Mechanics, of which Müller was president during the first four years. This association published reports and Müller's (1971) book, in addition to the journal Rock mechanics and Engineering Geology, whose first editor was also Müller for years.

Geomechanics is presently an engineering science that determines the design of dams, embankments and tunnels significantly and thus is also of present interest. By Müller's initiative, a completely new branch was thus founded some 50 years ago only. Müller clearly originates from the school of Josef Stiny (1880-1958), another expert in matters relating to hydraulics and geology, who founded the Geologie und Bauwesen journal in 1929, and who passed editorship later to Müller. After years of engineering practice, Müller was appointed honorary professor at Karlsruhe Technical University, where he lectured for 12 years until 1977, and then returned to Salzburg as a consultant. Müller was awarded the honorary doctorate from the Mining University Leoben and received the C.F. Gauss Medal from the Braunschweig Scientific Association, among others.
