The magnetic properties of RCo2Si2 (R = Nd, Tb, Dy) compounds were studied by measuring the high-field magnetization in magnetic fields up to 140 kOe and over the temperature range 4.2-45 K. The magnetic field induces in NdCo2Si2 three metamagnetic phase transitions and two transitions in TbCo2Si2 and DyCo2Si2 compounds.
