MD simulation for edge dislocations and GP zone performed by Prof. Suzudo from JAEA
MD simulation for edge dislocations and GP zone (387 KB)
One edge dislocation at the left side is just climbing along [1 1 2] direction and the other reached to the GP zone.

The dislocation line was significantly bent under the influence of the negative lattice strain field of the GP zone.

Finally, this interaction surely shows the cutting transition. A dislocation cuts through a coherent precipitate, it passes through the precipitate along the climbing direction of the edge dislocation.
