Abstract The magnetocaloric effect (MCE) in the DyNi2, DyAl2 and Tb1-nGdnAl2 (n = 0, 0.4, 0.6) was theoretically investigated in this work. the DyNi2 and DyAl2 compounds are described considering a model Hamiltonian which includes the crystalline electrical field anisotropy. the anisotropic MCE was calculated changing the magnetic field direction from < 111 > to < 001 > in DyNi2 and from < 100 > to < 011 > in DyAl2. the influence of the second-and first-order spin-reorientation phase transitions on the MCE that occurs in these systems is discussed. for the calculations of the MCE thermodynamic quantities in the Tb1-nGdnAl2 systems we take into account a two sites magnetic model, and good agreement with the available experimental data was obtained.
