In a first report [Jin ZH, Gumbsch P, Ma E, Albe K, Lu K, Hahn H, et al. Scripta Mater 2006;54:1163], interactions between screw dislocation and coherent twin boundary (CTB) were studied via molecular dynamics simulations for three face-centered cubic (fcc) metals, Cu, Ni and Al. To complement those preliminary results, purely stress-driven interactions between 60 non-screw lattice dislocation and CTB are considered in this paper. Depending on the material and the applied strain, slip has been observed to interact with the boundary in different ways. If a 60 dislocation is forced by an external stress into a CTB, it dissociates in to different partial dislocations gliding into the twin as well as along the twin boundary. A sessile dislocation lock may be generated at the CTB if the transited slip is incomplete. The details of the interaction are controlled by the material-dependent energy barriers for the formation of Shockley partial dislocations from the site where the lattice dislocation impinges upon the boundary.
