Prof. Jaromír Drápala was a professor at the Technical University of Ostrava, where he lectured on metallurgy of non-ferrous metallurgy, metallurgy of high-purity metals and special alloys, metallurgy of semiconductors, physical metallurgy of metals and materials for electrical engineering.

His research interests also include theoretical and experimental studies of element distribution coefficients in metals and semiconductors, simulation of directional solidification and zone melting processes, simulation and prediction of alloy properties after thermomechanical processing, investigation of diffusion processes and determination of interaction coefficients, vacuum refinement of metals by electron beam zone melting and preparation of single crystals of refractory alloys and their low alloyed alloys.

He is the author or co-author of more than 400 publications (10 monographs, 4 textbooks, 65 articles in foreign journals, 55 articles in Czech and Slovak journals, 200 papers in conference proceedings, etc.).
