Abstract: Under mechanical deformation of very high strain rates, it is expected that dislocations may move very fast (being subsonic, transonic, or even supersonic). As a result, two dislocations may approach each other at high velocities. Our earlier analyses of linear elasticity indicate that a dipole is destabilized when the approaching velocity is high enough—even below the speed of sound. In this letter, using the molecular dynamics method, we demonstrate that a dipole indeed can be destabilized above a critical velocity, and stable below that.
