A computer code for simulating the dynamics of an arbitrary 2D dislocation-disclination ensemble is developed. The code is constructed according to the molecular-dynamics principles; individual interacting particles are taken to be edge dislocations and dipoles of partial wedge disclinations. Pure copper is considered as an example for simulating the glide of one dislocation near an immobile dipole for various orientations of the dipole and under various initial conditions of the problem. The dislocation dynamics is shown to be mainly determined by the distribution of the elastic field of the disclination dipole rather than by the initial velocity of the dislocation.
