We studied some magnetic behaviors of the Blume-Capel (BC) model in a site diluted triangular lattice by means of the effective-field theory (EFT) with correlations. The effects of the exchange interaction (I), crystal field (D), concentration (p) and temperature (T) on the magnetic properties of the spin-1 BC model in a triangular lattice, such as magnetization, susceptibility, phase diagram and hysteresis behaviors, are investigated in detail. The phase diagrams of the system are presented in two different planes. The tricritical point as well as the tetracritical and critical end special points are found to depend On the physical parameters of the system. Moreover, when the hysteresis behaviors of the system are examined, single and double hysteresis loops are observed for various values of the physical parameters. We show that the hysteresis loops have different coercive field points in which the susceptibility makes a peak at these points. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved
