We examine the dynamic phase transition properties of ferromagnetic uniaxial nanowires with tunable radius r in the presence of both oscillating and biased magnetic fields. Variation of the transition temperature as a function of amplitude h(0) of the oscillating field has been analyzed in the absence of magnetic bias h(b) and at constant oscillation period P. We find that the transition temperature as a function of h(0) exhibits an exponential decay behavior. We also investigate the magnetization dynamics in terms of magnetic hysteresis loops as functions of the parameters h(b), h(0), and P. Our calculations are qualitatively in agreement with the recent experimental results obtained for uniaxial cobalt films in which it was concluded that the bias field h(b) is the conjugate field of the dynamic order parameter.
