Magnetic hysteresis curves were calculated using the Monte Carlo method to study the dependence of magnetic properties on the distribution of local magnetic sites on the grain boundaries of sensitized Alloy 600. The simulated curves illustrate that the total number of the magnetic sites and the standard deviation of the site distribution on grain boundary influence strongly the magnetic remanence and coercivity. The magnetic system can, therefore, be regarded as a magnetic granular structure with a distribution, and the results suggest a possibility of new method to control magnetic hysteresis.
