Fritz Horn graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Berlin Technical University in 1904 and there also submitted a PhD thesis in 1910. Horn started his career with the Krupp Germaniawerft in Kiel, where he was involved in the practical design basics of ships. In 1911 he was appointed head of the submarine department of the Imperial dock in Danzig, which he left as chief engineer in 1921 to continue with the German dockyard in Hamburg as the scientific head. Shortly later he joined the ship department of Preussische Versuchsanstalt für Wasserbau und Schiffbau in Berlin. After having been appointed Private Lecturer in 1912 at TU Danzig, he there was promoted to associate professor in 1921 and appointed professor of ship dynamics at TU Berlin in 1928.

Horn's particular interest in ship design was the relation between the ship body and the fluid dynamics. In his PhD thesis he investigated the effect of waves on the longitudinal stress of a ship. Later, he investigated ship rolling and means to prevent that disturbing phenomenon. Once in Berlin, Horn analyzed as many before him the resistance features of ships in wavy sea; he refined the theory of propellers and analyzed ship maneuvering in heavy sea conditions. Horn was a Member of Schiffbautechnische Gesellschaft STG and headed its section resistance and propulsion. He was awarded the Spanish Marine Order, the Golden Medal of the North East Coast Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders, UK, and the Silver Medal of STG.
