Abstract: Magnetization studies carried out in polycrystalline sample of DyNiAl show the presence of two magnetic transitions, one at 15 K and the other at 30 K. The low-temperature transition is attributed to the onset of antiferromagnetic ordering, while the other one corresponds to the ferro-para transition. Thermomagnetic irreversibility found in the temperature dependence of magnetization data is attributed to the domain-wall pinning effect and also to the magnetic frustration. Magnetocaloric effect is found to be negative in the antiferromagnetic phase and positive above the Neel temperature. (C) 2006
