Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to determine the fundamental magnetic characteristics of induction and hysteresis, for the alloy Cu2MnAl. This is a ternary, ferromagnetic Heusler alloy. The problem is not only to determine these characteristics for the alloy as-cast but to heat treat it and observe the manner in which different heat treat­ments affect these two fundamental magnetic characteristics.
