Joseph Spangler graduated as a mechanical engineer from the Technical University of Munich and there submitted a PhD thesis in 1927. In 1928 he joined the scientific and technical department of Hoechst Industry, the former IG Farbenindustrie, Frankfurt. In 1950, following the losses during World War II, Spangler reestablished its technical department as a chief engineer.
Spangler's PhD thesis was prepared under the supervision of Dieter Thoma (1881-1942) and was the second contribution to head losses across racks as used in hydropower installations to retain solid matter. Following the basic study of Otto Kirschmer (1898-1967) in 1926, Spangler investigated the effect of the oblique approach flow to the rack structure and thus generalized the previous results. Today, both the Kirschmer and the Spangler approaches are still used in hydraulic practice. Another work of Spangler in collaboration with Oskar Poebing (1882-1956) added to the understanding of head losses in riveted pipelines. After World War II Spangler published with a collaborator a booklet on the application of the similitude theory to process engineering, and he contributed various papers on chemical engineering. He also was the chairman of the VDI working group Process engineering and was a founding Member of the working group Vacuum.
