Abstract: The two-dimensional discrete dislocation dynamics simulations under fully periodic boundary conditions has been employed to study the dislocation pattern evolution in the early stages of fatigue in aluminium single crystal. Long-range force among of dislocations is solved by line elasticity model, and short-range force is obtained by constitutive equations of dislocation nucleation, slip, pileup and annihilate. Dislocation movement mechanisms of single-slip-oriented and multi-slip systems are simulated and the evolution process of fatigue pattern is revealed. The result shows that dislocation quantity and microstructure strongly depend on external load and internal configuration. The dislocation pattern of single-slip-oriented generate matrix wall, and positive dislocations are vertical alignment and negative dislocations are at the angle of 45° with slip oriented in the initial stage. For multi-slip system, maze structure of dislocations is produced during dislocation multiplication, which eventually transforms into persistent slip band. The result is consistent with the existing experiment.
