Mesoscopic simulations of dislocation interactions in thin, single crystal FCC metal films were carried out. Interactions between threading-misfit and threading-threading dislocation pairs were studied and the strength of the interactions determined. Threading-threading interactions were found to be significantly stronger than threading-misfit interactions. Dislocations with different possible combinations of Burgers vectors were studied under cyclic loading. Only annihilation of dislocations was seen to result in residual dislocation structure after complete unloading. No differences were observed in the nature of threading-misfit interactions in 111 and 001 oriented films.
