Rudolf Müller studied at the Technical University of Vienna. After graduation as a civil engineer in 1876, he entered the building contractor Baron Schwarz, where he stayed until 1913. From 1882, Müller acted as a chief engineer in its hydraulic department and greatly was involved in the design of pipelines and sewers. From 1914, Müller was with the Austrian Hydropower Company in Vienna as a design director.
\
Müller was a practical engineer who published books related to hydraulic works. He was a member of the Austrian Association of Gas and Water Experts which he presided during the difficult postwar years from 1919 to 1922. His professional interest was mainly related to the retention effect of lakes and reservoirs and he determined in various publications the reduction of peak inflow discharge by the presence of such a retention volume. These computations were initiated in France around 1860 when Auguste Graeff (1812-1884) determined the retention potential of reaches along the Loire River. Müller prepared also a popular dictionary of hydraulic engineering, water supply and wastewater technologies. His 1913 book describes the engineering approach for designing water supply works for medium sized cities, one of his expert topics. He also was a promoter of hydropower for small villages for self-sufficiency. One of his last works related to the Vienna Hochquellenleitung which was originally designed by Karl Kinzer (1857-1916).
