Being inspired by the results of recent experimental work ‘Phys. Rev. E 102 022 804’, we perform a series of Monte Carlo simulations to investigate the dynamic critical properties of a binary magnetic alloy system composed of two different components with different spin moments with the chemical formula A ( p A ) B ( 1 − p A ) . In the first part of the work, we concentrate our attention on the similarities between dynamic critical behavior and thermodynamic phase transition properties of the model. Finite-size scaling analyses suggest that the proposed binary alloy model exhibits 2D Ising universality class. In the second part, we examine the dynamic critical behavior in the presence of a magnetic bias field for which a metamagnetic sideband behavior originates in dynamic susceptibility curves. Our results yield that these metamagnetic anomalies survive for a wide range of magnetic atom concentration p A , and the strength of the anomalies observed in the field-dependent dynamic susceptibility varies very slowly with the T/T c ratio of the binary magnetic alloy.
